WELCOME!

New Year’s Day, World Day of Peace and the

Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

The first Marian prayer was written in Egypt in the 3rd century:

“Under your mercy we take refuge, O Mother of God

Do not reject our supplications in necessity, but deliver us from danger

O You alone pure and alone blessed.”

Mother of God, pray for us
