Association of the Miraculous Medal

How You Help Us Do Our Lady's Work

All members of our Lady’s Association come together to do our Lady’s work, whether it’s through prayer or financial assistance. Your many prayers enable us to reach out spiritually to those who are in need, and your monetary contributions provide the resources which help us to carry out our mission.

On this page you will find a brief financial accountability report for our fiscal year of July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018. Although you can read our mission statement in every issue of the Bulletin, I want to repeat it here:

The Association of the Miraculous Medal brings Jesus Christ to the world by inspiring devotion to Mary, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, through whom we unite ourselves in prayer to grow in holiness while supporting the apostolic mission and charitable works of our Vincentian priests and brothers.

The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal is our center of prayer.

It is through your support that we accomplish our mission and you become a partner in that mission. The report on this page shows the sources of our funds and how they are used.

Again, we are grateful for your kindness to our Lady’s Association. We continue to be humbled by your generosity. All this information is part of our Financial Report, available on request.
