But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and formed you, O Israel: fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name: you are mine.
Isaiah 43:1
Association of the Miraculous Medal

This is a very special year for the Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri. On May 18, we will celebrate our 100th anniversary of promoting devotion to our Blessed Mother and spreading the word about the Miraculous Medal, a gift she gave to us through Saint Catherine Labouré. The Association was established by the Western Province of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) in the United States. Saint Mary’s of the Barrens in Perryville, Missouri, was founded in 1818 by the Vincentian priests so it was only natural that Saint Mary’s should become a center of devotion to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. We ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers as we celebrate this milestone. Limited quantities of commemorative gifts designed for this occasion are available upon request for suggested contributions.

Join Us in Prayer...
As wildfires continue to spread in California and other states along with flooding in the eastern United States, we ask you to join the Association in praying for those who lost their lives, for those who are missing, and for the devastated cities. We also ask you to pray for the victims in the New Orleans shooting and those who were injured. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief, loss, and injury. May our Blessed Mother obtain for them consolation and comfort, and may she surround them with her love.

Thank you to the hundreds of generous families who have made this restoration possible.

Thank you for your continued understanding as we work around the schedule of our contractors, electricians, painters, and finishers.

As you can see from the pictures, it is really needed. If you haven't had a chance yet and still want to be a part of this once every hundred year restoration, there are still some beads and benches along the Rosary Walk that are available for naming. 

If you have questions or you are interested in supporting the restoration campaign, please call 
1-800-264-6279 and ask to speak with Sherry Clark, Krista Koishor, or Pat Vetter.

The Association of the Miraculous Medal would like to thank you for your support and understanding as the restoration campaign moves forward.

The Story of the Miraculous Medal Weekly Reflections Share in Mary's Promise
The Blessed Virgin herself designed the Medal of the Immaculate Conception--popularly known as the Miraculous Medal! No wonder, then, that it wins such extraordinary graces for those who wear it and pray for Mary's intercession . . .
