This Advent, Catholics throughout the Diocese of Venice are called to come together to participate in a Diocesan-wide Total Consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, following the structure of 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC (there's also the option to prepare with the traditional Montfortian method, too).
If this is your first time making the consecration, please attend the first parish session in Sacred Heart Hall on either Monday, November 21 at 7:00pm or Tuesday, November 22 at 9:00 am. If you've made the consecration before, you are more then welcome to attend the parish sessions or you may use the resources on this page to assist you in preparing to renew your consecration from home.
