Marygrove held a Crowning Mary and Consecration ceremony this week. We asked that Mary continue to wrap her cloak of protection around our mission, children, staff, board and benefactors. We also asked that through her intersession with her son, she continues to provide protection for those we serve and all who support our essential work of caring for children.
Within the Catholic Church Mary, the Mother of Jesus, holds a special place. She is known as our protector, mother, intercessor and compassionate one. She cares for us and the entire world. She watches over us and enfolds us in her care. We, as Catholics, do not worship her; however, we do call upon her, as we would our own mother, in times of need, joy, help and sorrow.
