The Marian Center has the goal of bringing all of the Parishioners of St. Patrick closer to our spiritual mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. We know that a close relationship with Mary, will draw us even closer to her son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. This goal is in accord with the overall stated mission of St. Patrick Church to be “a welcoming Eucharistic community”. Who better to draw us closer to our Eucharistic Lord, than his Blessed Mother, Mary?
Rosary Holy Hours
We will draw closer to the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Eucharistic Son, through our Rosary Holy Hours. We want our Rosary Holy Hours to create that sense of belonging to Mary as spiritual children, in the presence of her son in His Real Presence. The Holy Rosary is the beloved prayer of our dear mother and by offering this prayer in the Eucharistic Presence of her Son, we draw closer to both of them. In addition, we will publish monthly bulletin articles on Mary and offer other opportunities for St. Patrick Parishioners to draw closer our spiritual Mother, Mary. The simple reality that we espouse is that the easiest way to draw closer to Our Lord, is to unite ourselves to Mary, His mother.
St. Louis De Montfort
“Our entire perfection consists in being conformed, united and consecrated to Jesus Christ. Hence the most perfect of all devotions is undoubtably that which conforms, unites and consecrates us most perfectly to Jesus Christ. Now, since Mary is of all creatures the one most conformed to Jesus Christ, it follows that among all devotions that which most consecrates and conforms a soul to our Lord is devotion to Mary, His Holy Mother, and that the more a soul is consecrated to her the more it will be consecrated to Jesus Christ.” (St. Louis De Montfort)
