Promotional Text for Marian Congress on May 13

Save the Date for Mary and the Eucharist  on Saturday, May 13th
Bishop Gregory Parkes invites you to the fifth annual Diocese of St. Petersburg Marian Congress! The theme this year is ‘Mary and the Eucharist.”  Our Blessed Mother has a special role in leading us to her son, Jesus in the Eucharist. Save the date to participate in the Marian Congress on May 13th at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle (5815 5th Avenue N., St. Petersburg). This day of joy, renewal and prayer will include dynamic speakers, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, a multicultural Rosary and Mass with Bishop Gregory Parkes. Also, renew your consecration or be consecrated to Jesus through Mary for the first time. To learn more, visit www.FloridaMarianCongress.org.

The Marian Congress takes place in May because that’s when we celebrate the gift of mothers and we also thank God for the gift of the Blessed Mother. The Catholic Church dedicates May to Mary in honor of her role as the mother of Jesus and of those in Heaven and on Earth. She mothers everyone like a true mother, and she is the model for those who want to be faithful followers of Christ.

Be Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary or Renew Your Consecration
You are invited to the Mass of Renewal of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Saturday, May 13th at 4:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle (5815 5th Avenue N., St. Petersburg). Each year, we renew our consecration personally and as a Diocese. Visit FloridaMarianCongress.org to learn more.
