Butterflies symbolise how you must accept change, growth, and perspective
letting go of the aspects of yourself that hold you back
so that you can emerge stronger and more beautiful than before.
I would like to invite you and a guest to a Mass of Gratitude to be held on Friday, April 28, 2023, the Feast Day of St. Louis de Montfort,and the 44th Anniversary of my ordination to the Montfort Missionaries.
With your faith and support, our journey as a ministry has made great strides in the community. Thousands of men, women and children realize that they are not alone and that someone loves and cares for them. As a Hope Inspired Associate of Hope House Ministries, we are confident you will continue to stand by our mission in the years to come. Your partnership is vital to our success.
St. Louis de Montfort had a profound love for the poor and wounded among us. Let us honor his life’s testimony together as we continue to make a difference in 2023.
On his Feast Day this year, I will pray for your special intentions and thank God for all you do for those we serve.
Fr. Francis Pizzarelli, SMM, LCSW-R, ACSW, DCSW, CEO/Founder
St. Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort dedicated his life to the pursuit of the Wisdom of God. This decision entailed a radical dependence upon his Higher Power accomplished by service to the poorest of the poor. He wandered France preaching retreats and parish renewals dreaming of creating a community that would unconditionally accept every individual, no matter their life situation, for the purpose of encountering the tenderness of God’s love.
Others joined him. Marie Louise Trichet and Gabriel Deshayes gathered more men and women who organized and made Montfort’s dream a reality.
Today, Montfort Missionaries and their many associates serve in over 30 countries. Thousands of men, women and young people continue the tradition of seeking the Wisdom of God by providing opportunities for healing, restoration, and hope to those most in need.
