Mary's Mantle Consecration Retreat

We run the beautiful Mary’s Mantle Consecration written by Christine Watkins  

This is a self guided spiritual journey enjoyed in your home.  It is known to strengthen parishes, families, groups and individuals.

The retreat is made up of these components :

  • Daily Rosary : in your own home individually or as a family : some parishes have daily or weekly groups you may like to attend.  Please check with your local parish Priest.  

  • Daily reading (by email) of the virtues from Mary’s Mantle Retreat Consecration book

  • A deeper journey can be experienced by including Mary’s Mantle Consecration Prayer Journal 

  • Weekly videos and reflection – links are sent by email

  • Fasting - you fast for 1 day throughout the 46 days.  All participants pray for you on this day, it is quite an experience!  You will be sent the fasting schedule just prior to the retreat starting.

We are based in Australia, however participants can join in wherever you can access your emails. 


We email you daily for 46 days with prompts such as what the virtue is to read that day, who the 'stars' are for the day or to give you the link to the weekly video and reflection questions.

Parishes may choose from a variety of ways to incorporate the retreat into their activities ranging anywhere from gathering weekly for the videos or include participants in the Prayers of the Faithful at the various Masses each week, through to holding a celebration on the final day which is always a Marian Feast Day.  To learn more about how this may work in your Parish or High School please see Parish Resources

Mary's Mantle Consecraton Book
Journal Book

Mary's Mantle Consecration Prayer Journal is a companion book to the original book, and many of us wouldn't do the retreat without it as it brings a richer experience to the retreat.  Some will want 1 journal per participant.
