On the weekend of March 14-15, 2020 the M.I. Initiative promoting consecration to the Immaculate and enrollment in the Militia of the Immaculate made its 20th stop at St. Anne Catholic Church, in Columbus, GA.

The friars of Franciscan Martyrs Friary (Columbus, GA): Fr. Robert Schlageter, OFM Conv. (Guardian and Pastor of St. Anne’s), Fr. Noel Danielewicz, OFM Conv.
