First, a very happy and blessed New Year to all! May 2017 be filled with health and happiness, grace and peace, for you and your loved ones.
And with the beginning of the New Year comes our “Year with Mary, our Mother,” a special time of devotion for Mary, the Mother of God. In announcing this spiritual initiative, I expressed my hope that “In this year, the Diocese of Providence will renew its devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, and that we will strive anew to imitate her virtues, and to seek her grace and protection in our lives.”
