Immaculata Kids Newsletter for Catholic Families
Simply Explained Marian Devotion for Children
Here at Immaculata Kids, it is our mission, through our newsletters, to promote the beautiful concept of Marian Devotion within the lives of Catholic families by creating sweet little stories that explore some of the many wonderful Marian apparitions from throughout history and show kids how they can apply Marian intercession and devotion to their everyday lives.
We strive to spread Marian Devotion to Catholic Families.
Hello there and welcome, I’m
Maria von Hatten
Catholic Children’s Literature Author & Marian Devotion Advocate
Every since moving to Canada with my family when I was four years old, Marian Devotion is something that has been very present in my life. I remember going with my mum and my siblings to Rosary Group every Tuesday after morning Mass to make Rosaries for the missions. I loved planning and planting Mary gardens at each new house we moved to and making blueberry flavoured desserts on Marian feast days. Praying the Rosary in bed as I fell asleep and learning about new to me Marian Apparitions.
As I got older, I was surprised to learn that many Catholics weren’t introduced to Marian Devotion the same way I was when I was little. This made me sad and got me wondering if there wasn’t a way that I could change that in some small way.
That is when I created Immaculata Kids!
Marian Devotion is something that is not as widely discussed in the Catholic faith. It is something that is encouraged, but not really explained or presented in way that is easy to understand, especially for children. St. Louis de Montfort’s writing is truly beautiful, but far beyond the comprehension of the average child.
The purpose of Immaculata Kids is to answer questions about our relationship with the Mother of God. To help them see what Marian Devotion can be and how they can apply it to their own lives.
I advocate Marian Devotion for families who desire to deepen their relationship with Jesus through the guidance and intercession of Our Lady. Mother Mary, pray for us!
