Program Introduction

Preparation for Consecration to Mary in the spirituality of St. Maximilian Kolbe

 

 

 

We will provide the resources and information you need to make an intentional commitment to consecrate yourself to Mary if you so choose. We offer insights into the life of St. Maximilian, consecration to Mary, Our Lady’s role in salvation, and our baptismal call to evangelize. While there is much to learn, our real hope is that you will be renewed in your desire to give our Lord Jesus the very best, that is, to become a saint with the care and intercession of Mary, Our Mother. 


If you are not convinced about consecration to Mary, that's ok! Join us anyway, learn and pray. If you would like this to be a "refresher" to prepare to solemnly renew your consecration to Mary, join us! 

While we prefer to meet you in person, with the help of Mary and the Mercy of God, we are sure it will be a fruitful experience for all involved. Please pray for this and for us!

The preparation is in nine-parts. Each part will contain a few, if not all, these elements:
