True Devotion in Nebraska

netrip15The life of a Slave of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is full of sacrifice, joy and… adventure! We love to spread this wonderful devotion and it is always exciting to promote the spirit of True Devotion in places where you can see family life thriving in traditional Catholic parishes! …Recently two of our Sisters traveled to the midwest to the lovely parish of the Immaculate Conception, in Omaha, Nebraska, which hosted them for the weekend of November 19-23 as a motivational impetus to their parish-wide preparation for Total Consecration to Mary which was planned to take place on December 8th.

The Sisters' visit included a mini-retreat for young women; an evening with the parish youth group; presentations on True Devotion after the Sunday Masses; vocation talks for girls of all ages; as well as many occasions to meet and greet the parish families. There was also the added blessing of being able to attend the Ordinations to Minor Orders of the Fraternity of Saint Peter at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Lincoln, NE.

The mission was blessed from start to finish, and we feel honored to have met  many wonderful Catholics along the way! What an encouraging experience!

We can't thank Father Brancich, FSSP and Father Botta, FSSP enough for their sincere welcome to their parish! And a special "thank you" to our host family, Bart and Julie Crowell, for their generosity and friendship! It was such a blessing to be with you all! We hope some ICC parishioners will return the visit and come here to Still River some day! You are all very welcome!
