Marge Fenelon, Marian Pilgrimage, Ave Maria Press



I’m partnering with Ave Maria Press on this project, which will take me to nine different Marian pilgrimage sites coast to coast throughout the United States. I’ll be posting about my travels here on this blog and on my social media as well.

The resulting work will be a brand-new book published in Spring 2019 by Ave Maria Press called My Queen, My Mother: A Living Novena – A Marian Pilgrimage Across America. Modeled after my award-winning best-seller, Our Lady, Undoer of Knots: A Living Novena, Marian Pilgrimage will be part devotional and part armchair pilgrimage. In the pages of the book, I’ll take you along on my travels, letting you see, hear, and experience everything I do in these amazing spots where our Mother Mary is so lovingly at work. Then we’ll pray together a novena to our Blessed Mother asking her to intercede for our intentions and consecrating ourselves to her.

The project’s objectives are to

  • open eyes to our rich, Catholic heritage in the US
  • cultivate greater fervor for our Catholic Faith
  • generate deeper devotion to our Blessed Mother
  • draw attention to the awesome Marian sites throughout our country
  • foster unity of love of our beautiful country
  • inspire interest in visiting these beautiful places of grace


Each site has been chosen for it’s historical value, Catholic heritage, Marian character, and unique mission. The starting point of every journey will be the Schoenstatt Marian Shrine – the place of grace which was the birthplace of my fervor for our Blessed Mother and for Marian pilgrimage sites.

Here’s what I’ve written so far about my travels:

This ministry holds promise of blessings for so many people! Still, there are substantial costs for travel and lodging. Please consider defraying my expenses with a small donation.

I so look forward to joining you on this Marion prilgrimage from my home. I’ll join you in prayer at each site. And join my prayers to those who also will join you. Mary will bless you! I thank you for this sharing, which allows me to visit these shrines, that I otherwise would not be able to do.
