The mission of the Marian Ministry is to promote devotions at Holy Family Parish, especially to the Blessed Mother, through prayer, ministry, presentation of topics on Marian theology and Mary’s role in redemption of the world including visits to sites related to Mary such as shrines, and participation in Holy Family devotional activities along with evangelization by spreading the daily praying of the rosary, especially with families, and the power of this prayer as requested by Our Lady at Fatima.  The primary vehicle for achieving these goals is gathering the ministry to routinely pray the rosary and active participation in Marian feasts celebrated by the church including the May Crowning of our Blessed Mother. 

Additionally, because Mary is our intercessor to God through her son Jesus, whose true presence in the Eucharist is the core of Catholicism, the Marian Ministry promotes Eucharistic Adoration and faithful and regular participation in the Mass.
