SOLI Patronal Feast Day Celebration

A blessed Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary to you all! Today we joyously celebrated our Community's Patronal Feast. It is always wonderful to spend this day meditating on the tremendous gifts of grace bestowed upon Our Lady, especially her Immaculate Conception, being preserved from Original Sin from the very moment of her existence in the womb of her mother St. Anne, through the merits of the redemption her Divine Son would gain for us all through His life, death and resurrection.  

O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee! 

We began our Feast with the chanting of Lauds in praise of Our Blessed Lady. The Formation Household traveled over to Cambridge from Glen Morris to join the rest of the Community for the celebration of Holy Mass offered by Father Tim Higgins, at the end of which the sisters all renewed their Total Consecration to Our Lady together, according to the method of St. Louis Marie De Montfort. In the evening we enjoyed a meal together and some lovely singing in honor of our Lady with our dear friends Bishop Matthew Ustrzycki and Father Wayne Lobsinger. May Our Blessed Mother bless each of you with her motherly love and obtain for you and your loved ones the choicest of graces from her Son. Ave Maria!
