Please send me your Annunciation intentions for our octave of Masses and request Votive Lights to burn at our Lady’s Shrine. The octave begins Monday, April 9, and we want to remember you and your prayer requests throughout the eight days. On the feast of the Annunciation, April 9, the Church celebrates Mary’s “yes” to God. The angel Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus” (Luke 1:31). We hope you will come, in person or in spirit, to our Lady’s Shrine in prayer during our Annunciation Octave of Masses, and let Mary’s ‘yes’ be your ‘yes’ too!

The Annunciation is usually celebrated on March 25. However, when March 25 falls during Holy Week, the feast is moved to the Monday after the second Sunday of Easter. Therefore, in 2018 the Solemnity of the Annunciation will be celebrated on April 9.

On May 14, Fr. Kevin McCracken, CM, and a group of pilgrims will begin the Association’s pilgrimage to France and Switzerland in celebration of the Association’s 100th anniversary and the Vincentian charism’s 400th anniversary. The pilgrims will visit the chapel of our Lady’s apparition to Saint Catherine Labouré on rue du Bac in Paris in the year 1830. The pilgrims will also visit and celebrate Mass at the Chapel of the Vincentian Motherhouse where the remains of the Vincentian founder, Saint Vincent de Paul, are enshrined. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about this spiritual journey. We hope you will join us in spirit and prayer on this journey of faith by sending your petitions to be remembered in the Masses offered during the pilgrimage. In commemoration of this pilgrimage, request the Sterling Silver Miraculous Medal and chain, the Fancy Leaf Miraculous Medal and chain, or the Deluxe Paris Wood Rosary.  All gifts requested will be taken on the pilgrimage and blessed at the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, France. Gifts will then be mailed to you upon return from the pilgrimage. 

Follow the pilgrimage itinerary, and recite the prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal each day of the pilgrimage. You can also follow Fr. Kevin and the other pilgrims each day of their pilgrimage on our homepage, Facebook, or Twitter.

Mother's Day Remembrance
As adopted daughters of Mary, every mother on earth can count on our Blessed Mother to instruct them in the ways of Christian motherhood. Join us in celebrating Mother’s Day this year by asking our Lady to obtain God’s grace for the mothers in your life. The Association has a new Mother’s Day card which includes a prayer for the one who receives it, a remembrance in the Association’s Mass on Mother’s Day, May 13, and throughout the month of May. Send me your petitions and the names of your loved ones to be remembered here at the Shrine. Read Fr. Kevin’s inspiring Mother’s Day message about the challenges of motherhood and the love our Blessed Mother has for each of us.
