All are invited to the 2nd Annual Marian Congress

The Marian Congress is held in cooperation with the International Consecrated Marian Society.

As we strive to courageously live the Gospel, we have a wonderful example in the Blessed Virgin Mary. She experienced extreme challenges as a teenager and throughout her life but God’s grace helped her to overcome life’s difficulties. Mary is the Mother of God, mother of God’s children, mother of mercy, help of Christians and refuge of sinners.

Come find hope, joy and peace at this annual multicultural celebration that showcases the beauty of our universal Church. The Marian Congress features dynamic speakers, opportunities for prayer and reflection, Eucharistic Adoration, Confessions and fellowship. Lunch is included. The day concludes with a Mass to renew our Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The theme of the 2020 Marian Congress is “Courageously Living the Gospel Like Mary.” Our speakers will share insights about the courageous life of Mary and how she intercedes with her Son, Jesus Christ, on our behalf. Learn more about the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ and how He offers us a path to freedom, renewal and restoration through the intercession of His Mother.

Be inspired to live with courage like Mary! Register at the link below.
