Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Marian Consecration?
We’re glad you asked, [and we have a whole page dedicated to the answer of this question]. We also recommend you read the intro to the book 33 Days to Morning Glory, which will be gifted to you after all Masses the weekend of October 28th.
Why are we doing this?
As this month of the Rosary comes to a close, we as a parish Staff want to thank you for joining us at Bishop Burns request to pray the rosary for the healing of victims of abuse and the Sanctification of priests.
Besides the graces and healing that we hope will come from this prayer, it was a wonderful opportunity to fulfill our Vision for Mary Immaculate to “BE ONE”, and we truly believe that praying the rosary together at all masses brought about a special union to our parish; a “oneness”, if you will.
We have an opportunity to build upon this experience of being united in prayer and to get closer to Jesus through a special consecration to our patroness, Mary Immaculate.
We are very excited about offering a parish-wide opportunity to make a daily reflection for 33 days, culminating in a special consecration moment at the noon mass of the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th.
We are gifting you the study guide at the end of every Mass the weekend of Oct. 28th, and the staff has prepared a series of resources to made this a very doable, and hopefully a very fruitful, spiritual growth opportunity for you and your family.
As we go through the consecration, we seek to become one with Mary, one with Jesus, and one with Mary Immaculate Catholic Church.
The staff will be handing out books and information in the Narthex; please take one book per family and consider joining the movement!
Our prayer is that the entire parish would participate and become consecrated!!!
When does it start?
The Consecration itself will occur during the Noon Mass on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th. However, we encourage everyone to participate in the 33 Days of preparation for consecration that begins on November 5th and concludes on December 8th.
Why Do we prepare for the consecration?
“The preparation is intended to prepare our hearts and minds by praying and meditating. It is not a problem at all to begin after the start date, but it is recommended to “catch up” by doing all the prayers.” (Quoted from New Evangelizers Website)
Who is this for?
“Consecration to Jesus is for anyone, Catholic or not, who is old enough to understand the love of Jesus and Mary.” (Quoted from New Evangelizers Website)
