Association of the Miraculous Medal
Monthly Giving Letter 2018

When our Blessed Mother appeared to Saint Catherine Labouré on November 27, 1830, she showed the young Sister the design for a medal to be made and worn. Our Lady promised that all who seek her intercession through devotion to the medal would receive an abundance of God’s graces. Within a few short years, tens of millions of medals were distributed, and so many wonders were worked through Mary’s intercession that people began calling her medal the “Miraculous Medal,” the name we all know and love today!

Through your support of our Lady’s Association, we continue the work today of increasing devotion to Mary through promotion of her Miraculous Medal. I am confident that our Blessed Mother is bringing the world to her Son Jesus through this ministry made possible by your generosity. The work of Mary’s Association is never finished. There is more to be done, and we need your continued support. I invite you to make an even bigger impact this year by becoming a member of the Twelve Stars of Mary Monthly Giving Club. In doing so, you would join more than 1,100 other members who have already made this commitment of faith.

Participants in our Monthly Giving Club receive the following membership gifts as an expression of my gratitude:

• A sterling silver Miraculous Medal, blessed at the Shrine, on a stainless steel chain

• The late Father Luke’s book about Mary, "Christ's Mother and Ours"

• A laminated prayer card with a full color image of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal
  on the front and the Prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal printed on the back

• A 10% discount on all religious articles offered by the Association

Quarterly email updates that present news and events at the Association and the
  Shrine, as well as reports about the many Vincentian ministries you support

The Twelve Stars of Mary Monthly Giving Club is a convenient, once-a-month giving plan that allows you to support the Association’s mission in the most cost-effective way. By automating your gift through a monthly checking or credit card payment, you help lower administrative costs and allow your donation to go even further.

If you’re wondering how much of an impact your membership in the Monthly Giving Club could make, along with the generosity of other supporters, consider these statistics from 2017:

• 977,000 Miraculous Medals and chains and 2,323 rosaries were put into the hands of
  those seeking a closer relationship with Jesus.

 • 257,535 members from all 50 states and 35 countries were spiritually served through
   a monthly average of 4,400 phone calls, 1,700 emails, and 3,400 personal letters of
   acknowledgement.

As a member of the Monthly Giving Club, you can choose any of three easy ways to make your monthly donation:

1. An automatic funds transfer from your bank account on the 10th of each month.
(the way for your donation to go the furthest) 

2. A charge to your credit card on the 10th of each month.

3. Mail us a check.
