Editor: Fr. Ted Brown, M.S. delivered his talks at a National Gathering of La Salette Associates in Attleboro, MA on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014. About 50 people attended including Associates from the Northeast (MA, and NH) and the Midwest (St. Louis, MO area).
Those of you who know me, know that I’m a story teller. I believe that the true meaning of life – the true meaning of the journey – comes through stories.
We often talk about the La Salette Story. The children were told to tell the story – to “make it known”. That’s what they did for the rest of their lives. Here we are, many years later, because they told the story and something came alive in many hearts and they, in turn, retold that story again and again until we heard it for the very first time.
We can reread how the bible summarizes the story of Abraham’s journey from Ur to Canaan: “By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8).

Our Province: The Province of Mary, Mother of the Americas, was founded in 2000AD and is one of several provinces in the congregation. The members of this Province serve mainly in the countries of Canada, the United States and the Region of Argentina/Bolivia.
Our Mission: Our La Salette ministry of reconciliation responds to the broad vision given by Mary at La Salette as well as in response to the needs of the Church. As reconcilers, we together with the laity take seriously Mary’s mandate: “You will make (Mary’s) message known to all (her) people.”
