Local Knights and Dames attended a magnificent Liturgy for the Consecration to Jesus through Mary according to St. Louis de Montfort at Assumption Parish in Jacksonville, Florida. Thirty four days before, Fr. Hugh Gillespie, SMM, author of Preparation for Total Consecration According to St. Louis de Montfort, offered Mass for members at the beginning of their preparation.
On October 12, they processed with confreres in the Federal Association at Father Gillespie’s Mass of Consecration. Mass and music were sublime, and Fr. Gillespie is unsurpassed in Marian homiletics. This opens the 150th Jubilee year of the Diocese, and on October 11, 2020, Bishop Estevez will consecrate the entire Diocese to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
