On April 5, 14 members of the parishes of St. Paul the Apostle in Catawba and St. Therese of Lisieux in Phillips consecrated themselves to the Mantle of Mary during a Mass celebrated by Fr. Lourdu Raju Madanu. The consecration was the conclusion of a 46-day study, consisting of reading, reflection and prayer with the books “Mary’s Mantle Consecration” by Christine Watkins. Participants gathered weekly to view videos led by Watkins and Dcn. David Leatherby. (Submitted photo)
