Miraculous Book Bags

On October 4, approximately 1,000 students from Our Lady of Calvary Parish School (grades kindergarten through eight) received a Miraculous Medal on a keychain ring, which they affixed to the zipper of their book bags.

Before fastening their Miraculous Medals, students brought them to Mass, where after a homily discussion about St. Catherine Labouré and the Miraculous Medal, they prayed a consecration to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and then had them blessed.

A priest from Our Lady of Calvary Parish visited the kindergarten and first-grade students in their classrooms, where he led them in prayer and blessed their Miraculous Medals.

What’s more, each student received a copy of the book, The Story of St. Catherine Labouré and the Miraculous Medal: A Message for Today and Tomorrow. Published by Militia of the Immaculate in Canada, the books were donated by Bert Ronan of Ontario, Canada, who supplied The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal with thousands of copies to be distributed, especially to young people.
