Update August Newsletter


Greetings for the great celebration of our Mother Mary this Sunday, the solemnity of her Assumption.

Our Prelate, Msgr Fernando Ocariz, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his priestly ordination on this feast day. Here is his greeting and petition for prayers.

A piece of history: St. Josemaria made the first consecration of Opus Dei to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on this solemnity on August15, 1951 in a trip to the Holy House of Loreto.
