From Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, comes an extraordinary 33-day journey to Marian consecration with four giants of Marian spirituality: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and Blessed John Paul II. Fr. Michael masterfully summarizes their teaching, making it easy to grasp and simple enough to put into practice. More specifically, he weaves their thoughts into a retreat that will bless even the busiest of people. The parish is invited to participate in the six-session retreat called: 33 days to Morning Glory. Beginning on Monday, April 28th, the group will meet on Mondays from 7 - 8:30pm in PC402.
