My Emergency Summer Gift for Mary’s Shrine
Please respond by June 30!

Dear Friend in Christ,

After more than a year of COVID-related closures, fewer visitors, and fewer offerings to the Shrine, we are still struggling to recover financially.

 

Our ability to serve the faithful at Mary’s Shine and reach out worldwide and spread devotion to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal has been significantly impacted. These works depend on your generosity.

 

And the poor and marginalized that we Vincentians provide assistance to are still suffering greatly due to the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus. They urgently need your help.

 

As we open our doors and hearts to provide a place for people to deepen their devotion to Mary, Our Mother, we need your support again today.

 

That’s why I’m praying that as a faithful friend with a special devotion to Our Blessed Mother, you will help us get through the summer months.

 

Summer is usually the busiest time of year at Mary’s Shrine with pilgrims and visitors from all over the world coming to pray at Our Lady’s altar. They tell us how devotion to our Blessed Mother has changed their lives!

 

But summer is also the time of year we typically see a decrease in donations — even without a lingering global pandemic. So right now, this summer looks to be one of our most challenging yet.

 

Today, I’m asking you to consider something extraordinary: an emergency summer gift of an amount equal to what you might normally send over the course of the whole summer.  

 

If you are blessed financially to send a donation today, that would help tremendously to ensure we have the funds needed to continue serving you and our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

 

With your help again today, we’ll continue reaching out to your struggling brothers and sisters in Christ with Our Lady’s message of hope, healing, and salvation through her Son, Jesus.

 

And please take a moment to send me your prayer intentions. When you do, your intentions will be placed at Mary’s Altar at the Shrineto request her intercession and blessings on your behalf throughout the summer. Of course, no gift is ever required for you to receive our prayers.  However, if you’re able to help us avoid a summer funding gap, I pray that you will.

 

Because you’re one of our most devoted and generous supporters, I’m relying on you at this critical time. Be assured of my prayers and those of all the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers.

 

Gratefully yours in Mary Immaculate,

YES, Father Carroll, I want to show my devotion to Mary Immaculate by helping Mary’s Shrine avoid a summer funding gap. I’m rushing you my tax-deductible gift to support CAMM’s holy work:

You will be redirected to our secure online donation processing page to complete your donation.

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal told St. Catherine that she wants us to come to her and ask for her help!  So please, come to her by returning your Summer Novena of Hope prayer intentions by May 29.

I understand if the impact of COVID-19 or other factors temporarily prevent you from donating at this time. But if it’s possible for you to include support for our ministry, your generous tax-deductible donation of $35, $50, $100, or more will be a blessing to help us weather the storms we’ve faced this year.

I give thanks every day to our Lord and His Blessed Mother for your ongoing friendship, your prayers, and your support. Be assured of my prayers and those of all the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers.

Gratefully yours in Mary Immaculate,
Fr. Michael J. Carroll, CM
