2013 Total Consecration - St. Louis de Montfort's Way

Ad  Jesum  per  Mariam


 Our group will begin the 33-day preparation for the Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary (using the method of St. Louis de Montfort) on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.  Vows will be taken on the traditional Feast of the Immaculate Conception (Sunday, December 8, 2013).

St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort was a French priest and Third Order (Lay) Dominican whose writings have great spiritual value.  He was also the founder of two religious orders, the Sisters of Wisdom dedicated to the care of the sick and poor girls and the Company of Mary dedicated to missionary work.

The Montfort Method consists of a 33-day prayerful preparation period, followed by the vow of consecration on the 34th day.  Our group used this method last year and many of our members will be renewing the vow this year.
