Theme for 2017: “Do whatever He tells you.” – Jn 2:4
With these words of Our Lady we want to listen to Jesus and grow in love for Him. Our Shrine, as a place stored with grace, gives a great opportunity to meet Jesus in the sacraments of the Church and in our neighbour under the mantle of our Beloved Mother. We will ask Her, our Teacher in the Spirit, to lead us in adoration, prayer, praise and worship of the One, who is Lord of lords and King of kings – her Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour.
