Faithful from St. Anne's renew their consecration to Our Lady. Sixteen souls enroll in the Militia Immaculatae for the first time.

At St. Anne's, there is a healthy contingent of men, women, and children who belong to the Militia Immaculatae. Founded in 1917 by St. Maximilian Kolbe, this organization is composed of those who have consecrated themselves totally to the Blessed Virgin. As the one who crushes the serpent's head, she leads them to victory. How tremendously do we need this victory! How tremendously does Mary need generous souls who will fight for her and her Son! The members of the Militia Immaculatae, by the handing of themselves over to the Immaculata, hasten the day of victory by becoming willing instruments in the hands of the Virgin Most Powerful.

On December 8, 2019, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the members of the M.I. at St. Anne's renewed their consecration. This day is the prefered day of renewal since it is the feast of the Immaculata, to whom the consecration is made.

On this day sixteen new members made their consecration, pledging themselves for the first time in the army of Our Lady. May they grow closer to Mary every day of this new life they have entered.
