November 13th 5 couples and 6 individual adults made their act of total consecration. They were prepared be way of a power point Biblical presentation on Mary, along with her dogmas (by Joe & Sue), the DVD from Marytown on St. Maximilian and the MI, and an explanation of the total consecration prayer by Ann O’Donnell. Children programs were run by Village members, Alex & Sharon Soberon and Massimo & Mary Breda. About 25 kids prayed a simplified prayer of consecration to Mary. The celebration finished with a pot-luck for some 80 MIers.

The Masek Family
Tying in beautifully with the Church's tradition of praying for the faithful departed during the month of November, our final study week of A Man for Others highlighted the last days of St. Maximilian Kolbe and was followed by discussions of our own deceased loved ones. We will offer two family-based activities during the month of December as we carol at an assisted living facility and participate in the annual diocesan Las Posadas at the Cathedral.
