Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – Begins Monday, November 6, 2017

“Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”

We celebrated a special Mass marking the 100th Anniversary of the final apparition of Fatima.  During this celebration we consecrated Divine Mercy Parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  I look forward to the fruit of this action which is pleasing to God.

Consecration to Mary can happen on a personal level as well.  If you are interested in entering a process of personally consecrating yourself to Mary, St. Louie Marie De Montfort has provided a 32 day journey to undertake this promise.  Please contact Fr. Tom at (718) 387-0256 who will accompany you in this devotion.

I propose the final date of consecration to be the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8th, 2017 (it takes 32 days)—so we must begin the process by early November.  Call or speak to Fr. Tom personally if you have questions or want more information.
