Association of the Miraculous Medal
News from the Association
Blog Home > Tags > Million Medals
Three years ago the Association set and achieved an ambitious goal of distributing one million Miraculous Medals as a gift presented to our Lady on her birthday, September 8. This year, as a way of beginning the Association’s next 100 years of service, and with the power of so many great members, we are setting a new goal of distributing two million Miraculous Medals by our Lady’s next birthday. We hope you will join us in our efforts. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the hopeful message of the Miraculous Medal.

On June 20 of 1832, two long years after Saint Catherine Labouré received the image of the Miraculous Medal from our Lady, the first 2,000 medals were struck and made ready for distribution. Catherine looked upon these inaugural medals and said, “Now it must be propagated.”

As you know from your faithful membership in our Lady’s Association, tens of millions of medals were distributed in the first eight years of production alone, and countless millions more have been propagated since!

This past Lent, the Association invited you and all her members to join together in giving our Blessed Mother a special birthday present. We challenged one another to give out a total of one million Miraculous Medals before Mary’s birthday on September 8.

Well CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU! Not only did we meet our goal, but because of your help, we surpassed it with a total distribution of 1,730,305 medals. What a wonderful birthday gift we were able to present to our Blessed Mother!
