On Monday, May 7, the Miraculous Medal Shrine will honor the Blessed Mother and all mothers with a May procession, rosary, novena and Mass.
The procession will begin at 11:15 a.m. at the statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the shrine parking lot. Participants will pray the rosary while processing to the shrine. A novena and Mass will follow at 12:05 p.m. Those who are unable to join in the procession are welcome to pray the rosary while remaining in the shrine.
The procession and celebration will also be livestreamed at www.MiraculousMedal.org/LiveStream.
