Join us this month of October 2020 that we dedicate in a special way to Mary. Two years ago, in October 2018, our brand new parish (formed by the merger of St. Nicholas and St. William parishes in Los Altos) began its new life by being consecrated “To Jesus through Mary” by Fr. John and Bishop McGrath. In preparation for that event we offered the popular 33 day personal consecration program to all of our parishioners. This year we are again offering that program and will renew our Parish Consecration at a special Mass on November 1st.
By signing up for this program you will receive a daily email that steps you through some prayers, a short meditation and sometimes a question oriented toward understanding your life as a beloved brother or sister of Jesus through Mary’s eyes. In the past we have offered two different daily prayer/meditation programs – the Classic Montfort program and an updated version published by the Montfort Missionaries in 2011. This year we are pleased to offer a third alternative excerpted from the very popular “33 Days to Morning Glory” program which reflects with Mary through the lives of four great Saints. The daily email will include links to all three, so you don’t need to choose now and you can switch midstream, if you feel so called.
One caveat: All three programs are oriented toward making a personal consecration “To Jesus through Mary” at the end of the 33 days. Please be advised that you do not need to take this final step if you do not feel called or ready to do so. There is tremendous spiritual value in just spending some little time every day with Jesus’ mom–who happens to be your spiritual Mother too!
