    33 Days to Morning Glory

    At St.Vincent Ferrer Parish, groups and individuals have been pondering the mystery of Marian consecration and how it works in forming us to become saints. Our guide is 33 Days to Morning Glory: A Do-It-Yourself Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration by Father Michael Gaitley. Marian consecration follows 33 days of preparation, ending on the vigil of a Marian feast.

    You are invited to prepare for Marian consecration on your own or with a group. Groups run at various times during year.  The 33 Days book can be purchased online or at Catholic bookstores. The Retreat Episodes & Guide is available FREE online at FORMED.
