About La Salette

Named for Mary’s mother, St. Ann is staffed by the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette, an order that is dedicated to the ministry of reconciliation. Our community is invited to bring people together, provide support to those in need and share the love of Christ with everyone. La Salette missionaries serve all over the world, and are called to share the message of Mary’s grace. The hammer and pincers on the La Salette cross represent the sins of humanity that put the nails into the hands of Jesus and the good actions we do that remove the nails from his hands.

In 1846, in La Salette, France, the Blessed Mother appeared to two children. She told them to “make known to all my people” her message. Inspired by Mary’s call for reconciliation with God, the Missionaries of La Salette were founded in 1852 as “ministers of religion” to be “faithful dispensers of the mysteries of God.” Their charisms (a spiritual gift from God granted to the recipient for the benefit of others) focus on reconciliation and the Eucharist.
 
Today, the Missionaries of La Salette are active in many areas, from caring for the spiritual needs of the order's shrine visitors and parish community members, to serving as chaplains, teachers, youth ministers and counselors. The Province of Mary, Mother of the Americas, has approximately 120 members serving in the United States and Canada, as well as in Argentina and Bolivia. They work with bishops, clergy, parishioners, pilgrims and others throughout North America and the mission region in South America. There are more than 1000 missionaries serving in 27 countries around the world.
