Thanks to good coordination and cooperation across generations (Class I-XI), all the food and drinks needed for social gatherings are available in abundance.

May 7th for the big Montfortan family is a special and special day. The Society of Marys of Montfortian has dedicated this day's date in memory of Blessed Marie Louise of Jesus. This Celebration of the Consecration of the Self is not an accident in itself but an arrangement of God himself. Just as he was open to Our Lady's encouragement to meet with Montfort, so are the eight new AMQAH members. Mother Mary herself moved them to get acquainted with the spirituality taught by St. Montfort. The hope is that after they perform the Dedication, Christ's likeness will increasingly appear and grow in their daily lives.
