Marian Day of Prayer

Retreat Preacher: Fr. Terrance Chartier, F.I.

What does it mean to be devoted to someone or to something? More specifically, what does it mean to be devoted to Mary? Why consecrate ourselves to Mary? Isn’t it enough just to belong to God? Come and join us for the Marian Day of Prayer, where Fr. Terrance, F.I. will answer these questions and more, as he speaks on the topic of devotion and consecration to Our Lady. The conferences will focus on the essential elements of Marian devotion, explaining why Christians should have special devotion to Mary, what the difference is between interior and exterior devotion, and what the characteristics are of someone who truly is devoted to the Mother of Jesus. Fr. Terrance will also address the nature of consecration in general and the importance of Mary in our spiritual life. St. Louis de Montfort’s reasons to be consecrated to Mary will be presented as will some reflections by St. Maximilian Kolbe on what it means to give oneself entirely to Mary through consecration to Her.

Fr. Terrance J.M. Chartier has been with the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate since 2007. As a friar, he studied philosophy and theology in Italy and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theology from the Salesian University in Rome in 2017. He was ordained a priest in his home town of New Bedford, Massachusetts, on October 21, 2017, by the hands of Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha at the Marian friary of Our Lady’s Chapel, currently staffed by the Franciscans of the Immaculate. He is currently assigned to the Marian Friary of Our Lady Coredemptrix in Bloomington, IN.

Entering into the Mystery of the Incarnation with St Luke

Retreat Preacher: Fr. Daniel Mahan

On the First Sunday of Advent, 2018, we will enter into Cycle “C” of the Sunday readings. Cycle “C” is the year of St Luke, whose three Gospel Canticles, the Canticle of Zechariah (the Benedictus) the Canticle of Our Lady (the Magnificat) and the Canticle of Simeon (the Nunc Dimittis) provide great insight into the life, death and resurrection of our Lord. The Advent Day will give participants insight into the Gospel of St Luke that will be proclaimed throughout the new liturgical year and into the Gospel Canticles that give us occasion to praise and glorify God in the rhythm of our daily prayer.
