Marian Consecration for 100 Years of Fatima
“Marian Consecration is the surest, easiest, shortest, and the most perfect means to become a saint.”
Join us as we begin a 33-day preparation for Marian Consecration. For six weeks, we’ll individually read about and reflect on four great Marian giants: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Mother Teresa, and Pope St. John Paul II.
They’ll teach us the secrets to drawing closer to the Heart of Jesus through the Heart of Mary. Individual daily preparation will begin on April 10th, which is Monday in Holy Week. The Consecration will be held in a group on on Saturday, May 13th, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, after the 8:30 am Mass.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Marian Consecration useful and beneficial for me?
Roman Catholics believe that it is important to have Jesus in our lives. That is good, but more is available to us. Through Marian Consecration we open our lives to Jesus is a total and comprehensive manner. To do this we use a Church-approved and well-tested means.
It is through Mary that we learn truly what “Do whatever He tells you” means. It is through Mary that we learn to live in God’s Will for us rather than our own. It is Mary who teaches us: “Let it be done to me according to your word.” Marian Consecration helps us to walk the “road that is straight” and enter through the “door that is narrow” to enjoy eternal life with the Holy Trinity, with Mary and Joseph, and with all of the angels and saints.
Marian Consecration helps us to make sense of our lives.
When do I begin?
We had an introductory meeting on April 1st, and passed out the Materials. Our readings in preparation for Consecration will begin on April 10th for Consecration on the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, which is May 13th.
Will the daily readings take a long time?
The reading each day will take about five minutes.
Is there an electronic version of the readings that I can use?
Yes. If you prefer to use eBooks, you can purchase them directly from the Marians by clicking here.
Are there weekly meetings?
This will be an self-guided program. We will have an introductory meeting (April 1) and a mid-session meeting on April 29th. The mid-session meeting is an opportunity to ask questions that may arise while you are doing the daily readings and to learn from the experiences of others preparing for Marian Consecration.

Our Consecration Day will be Saturday, May 13th, the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. The Consecration will take place at Mary’s Altar at St. John Cantius Church after the 8:30am mass.
