Recommended Reading for The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 Available in our Bookstore today!

The Secret of Mary

"The Secret of Mary" sets forth the very heart of True Devotion to Mary. In this small but powerful book, St. Louis de Montfort shows why this "secret", known by few is such an excellent yet easy means of union with God. Followed and recommended by Popes and Saints, this way of life is nevertheless perfect for lay people, as well as for priests and religious. It is primarily an interior practice to be carried out daily, from moment to moment-and if followed faithfully, it will certainly bring a person to profound holiness and great effectiveness as an apostle." Tan Publishers

The Secret of the Rosary

"Canon William says of De Montfort's book, The Secret of the Rosary, it goes far beyond mere research. We might say it contains everything that can be said about the Rosary-its content and form, its real worth, about the instruction necessary for its appreciation and use."

Book of Mary

This beautiful collection of prayers affirms that "as we honor the Mother, we also truly know the Son and give him love, glory, and obedience."

Ministers Needed!

God does call each of us to some form of ministry, and God will give us all that we need to answer that call. All we need is a willing heart and a love of God.

♦ We are in need of many to assist with the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass.

♦ Those who are gifted to speak publicly should consider becoming lectors.

♦ Others should see themselves called to serve as Ushers.

Please consider how God is calling you to one of these liturgical ministries. Sign up forms are available at the Security Desk.
