3 essentials: prayer, training, charitable endeavours


Prayer groups affiliated to Our Lady of Montligeon Fraternity meet on a regular basis, – either weekly or monthly – and pray for souls in union with the shrine’s mission. Praying the Rosary of Our Lady of Montligeon is at the core of their meetings. At their disposal, special meditations provided by the Montligeon shrine.


Members of associated MGPs are invited to develop their faith knowledge, especially with regards to eternal life. Purposely organized training sessions are on offer at the shrine, or by means of the shrine chaplains’ “Montligeon Missions” organized at national or international level.

Charitable endeavours

Members of the Montligeon Prayer Groups are often engaged in additional substantial charitable undertakings, such as joining in their parish funeral teams, or volunteering at their local hospital, home for the elderly, etc.

United but not uniformed

Locally embedded

Based on these essential common grounds, MGPs develop as they wish according to their cultural and social environment, responding to the needs and expectations of their fellow citizens. They always seek to take into account the different kinds of people composing the prayer group and thus, adapting accordingly, to include – and be grasped by – all present (youngsters, the elderly, the handicapped, etc).

MPGs get established within a parish public hall. They might as well meet in hospitals, homes for the elderly, and even in schools. However, it is compulsory to get appropriate official consent, that of the parish priest, and of civil authorities in charge when using public structures, not forgetting to let the shrine know.

Valued multiplicity!

The Fraternity of Our Lady of Montligeon is an international prayer soladity. Its numerous prayer groups are most varied in size and kind. For example, some choose to specifically pray for the souls of deceased prisoners and for people who have committed suicide, others lead a weekly Rosary prayer for departed souls, on a local Catholic radio network, etc.
