Join Our Lady in Praying for Hope for America Aug. 6

This Aug. 6 is a First Saturday, 33 days from this Saturday is Sept. 8, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, is planning a celebration of Our Lady and the overturning of the Roe vs. Wade decision that day.

In preparation for that celebration, and to recommit ourselves to love of God and neighbor, consider joining those who wish to consecrate themselves to Mary on Sept. 8. Click here to buy the 33-day preparation book to help in that process.
