“As the first disciple and most perfect and faithful disciple of her son, she is with Him and with God the Father in Heaven. She is where we hope and long to be one day and in her maternal care and concern, she desires to help us through her intercession to achieve this end for which we were created.” – Bishop Gregory Parkes

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