Did you know that the Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, which is prayed in parishes throughout the world, was started by our very own Fr. Joseph Skelly, CM? Discover how this prayer heard round the world began; it's not as simple as you might think.

Join us for our Solemn Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, from November 16 through 24. Fr. Timothy Lyons, CM, will be telling us the true stories about nine young Vincentians (and one not so young), who left everything they knew to spread the Gospel in China. Hear their stories, see some of their artifacts, and learn how the difficulties they faced can help us through our own challenges.
Send us your prayer intentions as soon as possible, so we can place them at Mary’s Altar. They will remain there during these nine days of powerful prayer and on Mary’s Feast Day, Wednesday, November 25. Our Masses will be livestreamed, and you can pray with us no matter where you are.

Don't forget to light a candle for your departed loved ones especially during November.
by Fr. Al Pehrsson, CM, a resident of St. Catherine’s Infirmary, Philadelphia
Two years ago, Buddy lost his wife to cancer. Taking care of her was undoubtedly hard, but his unwavering faith helped him through it. So did his devotion to Mary and her Miraculous Medal. Along with a smile, he always wears his Miraculous Medal in plain view--and carries a brochure in his truck. If you ask him about Mary's Medal, he’ll respond with a simple but well proven message: “We always have to keep the Blessed Mother and Our Lord in our hearts.”
Share your Marian devotion and Shrine photos with us on Instagram and Facebook.
Beginning on November 16, our Miraculous Medal Family worldwide will join together in nine days of prayer to our Blessed Mother. And when we do that, lives are changed! Time and again, we've seen the power of our united prayers in asking Mary's graces upon us, our loved ones, and our world.
It’s so easy to get distracted by the problems in the world around us. Our hearts can become filled with fear and sorrow. But no matter what troubles we’re going through right now, we can lay them at our Holy Mother’s feet. Send us your prayer intentions as soon as possible, so we can place them at Mary’s Altar. They will remain there during these nine days of powerful prayer to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and on her Feast Day. Watch our livestreamed Masses, and be sure to pray with us no matter where you are.
