Association of the Miraculous Medal

Saint Maximilian Kolbe told us plainly, “Let us give ourselves to the Immaculata [Mary]. Let her prepare us … she, who knows how to unite ourselves totally with the heart of the Lord Jesus.”      

It is through prayer that we “give ourselves” to Our Lady. To draw closer to her is the surest and shortest pathway to the heart of her Son. And by asking for Mary’s intercession, we can also bring others nearer to her and to Our Lord. That’s the primary mission of the Association — and this letter.      

I invite you to enroll yourself or a loved one as a Perpetual Member of the Association of the Miraculous Medal. It is truly the gift of a lifetime. Perpetual Membership affords recipient(s) an eternal share in the spiritual benefits offered at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, even after being called from this life.       

All perpetual members enjoy:  
  • Remembrance in a monthly novena of Masses
  • Two additional novenas, plus 30 other Masses each month            

You can enroll someone you love. Request a White Perpetual Membership Certificate, then send us their name(s) using the enclosed form and envelope. The suggested offering is $15 for each person, or $25 for a couple. Give this inspirational gift of prayer for birthdays, weddings and anniversaries, to express sympathy, to celebrate Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, or simply to show your loving care.

Many members choose AMM’s engraved deluxe Individual Perpetual Membership certificate for the suggested offering of $25 per person, or $35 per couple. Our Family Perpetual Membership certificate is also available for a suggested offering of $50. Call us or go online to request these options. Photos of these certificates and more details can be found here.      

Your membership offering, as well as any additional offering you choose to make, helps support the Association of the Miraculous Medal’s mission to draw souls to Jesus through devotion to Our Blessed Mother. You help maintain the beautiful National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal— a 40-acre prayerful, peaceful haven of hope and healing. A portion of your generosity also assists Vincentian ministries of evangelization and service to the poor.      

As a final word of inspiration, I turn again to Saint Maximilian Kolbe. “You are hers,” he assures us. And “the Immaculata will conquer, through us, the whole world and every single soul.”      

Please pray for me and for fellow AMM members, as we do for you. May Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal keep you in her loving, maternal care.

Sincerely in Jesus and Mary,

Fr. Kevin McCracken, C.M.
Spiritual Director
