Presentation on the Shrine to Mary, Mother of Fairest Love
Saturday, January 22, 4 p.m.
Not long after Opus Dei got started in the United States,  St Josemaria expressed his hope that someday his  American sons and daughters would build a shrine to Mary under the title of Mother of Fairest Love.  He envisioned it above all as a place to pray for the family and for marriage.  For some years now,  members of the Work in California have been working on this project.  It is still in its early stages, but has progressed far enough that they want people connected with the Work all over the country to know about it, to pray for it, and to begin thinking about fund raising.  
Jackie Taylor, the President of the not-for-profit corporation that is sponsoring the project will be in the NY area  on Friday, January 21, and Saturday, January 22.  We will host two information sessions with her about the project, one at IESE Business School (165 W.57th St., NY, NY)  on the 21st at 7 p.m. and another at Southmont on the 22nd at 4 p.m.  Anyone who might be interested is welcome to attend,  men and women, members of the Work,  cooperators, and friends.   Please RSVP  through this Google form for the Saturday January 22 event at Southmont, or here for the event at IESE. If at the last minute you find out you can attend, please don't hesitate to come even if you didn't RSVP.
