What is the Militia of the Immaculata

Welcome to the Official Site of the MI in the USA

The Militia of the Immaculata (MI) is a worldwide evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 that encourages total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a means of spiritual renewal for individuals and society. The MI movement is open to all Catholics over 7 years old. It employs prayer as the main tool in the spiritual battle with evil. Members of the MI also immerse themselves in apostolic initiatives throughout society, either individually or in groups, to deepen and spread the knowledge of the Gospel and our Catholic Faith.

Important News About the MI National Center

Dear MI Members and Friends of Our Lady: 
As the newly elected President of the MI in the USA, recently I was informed by Fr. John Grigus, Rector of Marytown, that the MI National Council must leave Marytown. He cited finances and the changing mission of Marytown to a broader, more diversified vision of apostolates and ministries. This means Marytown will no longer be the National MI Center. A very large expansion of the National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe at Marytown is being planned, but the plans do not include continuing as the home of the Saint’s great spiritual legacy and gift to the Church, the Militia of the Immaculata.
