About 50 pilgrims gathered for the Open House at Our Ladyís Workshop. They got a first-hand look of our sizeable operation when they toured the offices and pressroom. They also enjoyed good conversation, refreshments and the gardens.

Anniversary Gift Shop  Rosaries, medals, books and other sacramentals were laid out and made available to the pilgrims who obtained many gifts for their loved ones back home.
       Our Lady said on March 18, 1975, "Know that your sacramentals were given for reason. Do not cast them aside! Understand, My children: if satan removes your sacramentals, he has more advantage over you."
