The Marian Movement of Priests (MMP) is an international Catholic spiritual movement for both clergy and laity, devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The MMP at St. Bernadette belongs to this movement and follows its guidelines. Among the activities of the MMP are Cenacle and Rosary prayers, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and study of the role of the Blessed Mother in the life of the Church. The spirituality of the MMP is characterized by three commitments: consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, unity with the Pope and with the Church united to him, and the leading of the faithful to a life of entrustment to Our Lady. Meets the first Friday of the month at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm in the Shrine.
