175th Anniversary of Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette
Mary appeared to two children near the small village of La Salette in the French Alps on September 19, 1846, giving them a message for the world. She asked that her words be brought to the attention of all the people. Obviously, this meant the people living in 1846 but it also meant the people of future generations – including us. We invite you to read about the simple but extraordinary message and mission of Our Lady of La Salette.
