Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

The Face of the Reconciler, is to share the message and meaning of the La Salette Apparition for ordinary Christians with practical application to their daily lives. It is considered by many Marian scholars as the most biblical of recent Apparitions and touches upon the basics of the Christian life: an active faith, daily prayer, the importance of the Eucharist, reverence for the Name of Jesus, use of the Lenten habits of faith and finally the call to share her message and that of her Son with all God’s people.

La Salette : A Message and A Mission
spiral border

La Salette was an unknown hamlet lost in one of those giant crevices of the French Alps. Early on September 19, 1846, the two children climb the slopes of the Mount Sous-Les-Baisses, each urging four cows up the mountain. Contrary to their habits, the two children lay down on the grass and fell asleep. The September sun was relaxing and the sky was cloudless. The chattering brook highlighted the mountain stillness. These were quiet moments.

Our Community: The Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette are deeply rooted in the Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette which occurred near the hamlet of La Salette in southeastern France on Sept. 19, 1846. The Missionaries were founded in 1852 by Bp. Philbert de Bruillard, Bishop of Grenoble, France, and presently serve in some 25 countries.

Our Province: The Province of Mary, Mother of the Americas, was founded in 2000 AD 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.”
