Rosary for Life

The Association of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, invites you to participate in our annual “Rosary for Life.”  This event will take place on Saturday, October 8, at 9:00 a.m., at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  Please gather at the Welcome Center next to the Shrine Church. Weather permitting, we will pray the Rosary at the Miraculous Medal Moments Area.  In case of inclement weather, the Rosary will be recited in the Shrine Church.  Following the Rosary, Father Ron Ramson, C.M., and Alina Korn, of Vincentian Marian Youth and Options for Women, will talk about the preservation of life. Please invite your family and friends to attend this event in which we ask Our Blessed Mother to intercede for the protection of life.  For more information about this event, please watch for updates or call 1-800-264-6279 and ask for Frank.

Blessing of Animals

You and your loved ones are invited to bring your family pet for a special blessing on Sunday, October 9, at 1:30 p.m., CT, at the grounds of the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri.  The blessing will take place near the Visitor Center by the Miraculous Medal Moments Area.  After the blessing, take some time to enjoy the beautiful Rosary Walk and visit the Shrine grounds.  If you have any questions, please call the Association of the Miraculous Medal office at 1-800-264-6279 and ask for Frank.

Relic of St. Catherine Labouré

We have exciting news to share!  Earlier this year a young man, who wishes to remain anonymous, gifted the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal with an heirloom, first-class relic of St. Catherine Labouré.

The relic was given to his grandmother by a priest friend and was then passed on to the young man years later.  After prayerful consideration, he felt sure the relic belonged in a place where it could be seen and venerated by the public—not hidden away in his safety deposit box.  He found our Lady’s Shrine while searching the internet and made a special visit to Perryville to “check us out.”  After his visit and tour of the Shrine, the grounds, and the Miraculous Medal office, he knew in his heart that he had found the right home for his relic of St. Catherine to reside.  Of course, we are honored and blessed that this young man chose to pass on his precious heirloom to us. 

Now that we have prepared St. Catherine’s relic for veneration here at our Lady’s Shrine, it will be available every Monday before and after the Miraculous Medal Novena which follows the 12:10 p.m. Mass.

May we all be reminded of St. Catherine’s exemplary cooperation in the mission Mary gave her.  Let us also be inspired to call on Catherine in prayer, and on the grace of God to live the same faith-filled life that she did.
