STAY CONNECTED & PREPARE FOR THE EVENT
Beginning Sept. 21, the archdiocese will release twice-weekly preparatory aids that will follow the structure of Learn, Pray, Imitate. It is important to learn more about Mary and her virtues, so we can imitate her in our daily life. Mary is the Christian par excellence. If we want to follow Our Lord, it would do well to follow the example of Our Lady.
