Claretians in the Philippines set to hold first Marian conference 

The Claretian Missionaries in the Philippines, through its publishing ministry, will hold the first Conference of Mary to “enhance the Filipino Marian Spirituality” in May. 

The theme, ‘You Are Most Blessed Among Women’ aims “to convey the role and importance of Mary in the life of the Catholic faithful and the mission of the Church,” according to Fr. Dennis Tamayo, CMF, executive director of the Claretian Communications Foundation, Inc.

“She is the mother of God who is the perfect model and the most powerful intercessor,” the priest added. 

The conference will be held in Gonzalez Hall, Claret School in Quezon City on May 01, 2024, the Feast Day of St.  Joseph the Worker. It aims to highlight the multifaceted roles of Mary  – as mother,  foundress, formatrix, and protectress – in our faith and life as followers of Jesus. 

In a statement, the Claretian Missionaries said the inwardness of Mary was imbibed by Claret and the  Claretians as Missionary Servants of the Word enflamed with charity and configured after the example of Christ.

In order to fully understand the life of Jesus, the Claretians said the faithful must “look at the role of Mary” and “how she willingly accepted the will of the Father to be the mother” of Christ.

“The Blessed Virgin Mary continues to journey with us. She has been our faithful companion through generations, guiding us towards God. The various titles and epithets under which Mary is venerated and invoked, many mentioned in the Litany of Loreto, reflect the respect and honor attributed to her,” the congregation said.
