Welcome to Mary Day 2001

Tentative schedule and subject to change

    Tuesday, August 14
  • 6:00 PM - Dutch treat supper at Jasper's in Tahlequah, OK
    Wednesday, August 15 - Mary Day 2001 at Lake Tenkiller
  • Open house at the Kirkwood's from 10 AM to 3 PM. Meditation from 2 to 3 PM.
  • At about 4:00 pm we will meet at the Cherokee Landing State Park (at Lake Tenkiller) on Hwy 82, Pavilion B. We will have a pot luck evening meal around 5:00 pm.
  • 6:30 PM - silent prayer and contemplation time as we watch the sun set and the phenomenal time with Mother Mary.
Bring enough food and drinks for your party. We'll share a pot luck supper. Also, please bring lawn chairs, quilts, or beach towels to sit on the ground. At 6:30 pm we get quiet, prayerful and reverent as we watch the sunset. In the past the sun has begun to spin between 6:30 & 7 pm. Use your camera lens to look at the sun, we have looked directly into the sun since 1992 without damaging our eyes. Please use your own discretion when looking at the sun. Be aware that current medical information cautions us not to look into the sun. At the end the evening, we form a circle. We close by singing "Amazing Grace" and "Let There Be Peace On Earth." Each year has been a very moving experience, that renews our faith and commitment.

Note from Annie: Please accept my apologies ahead of time if I seem aloof and not aware of my surroundings. On August 15th, I go into a state of meditation and contemplation as a preparation for Mother Mary's visit. As it gets closer to sunset, I have an urgency to be alone. You may see me go apart from the group, it's not that I don't appreciate and value your visitit's an inner calling to be very, very still. Thank you for your understanding.
Lovingly, Annie


Be aware that we can have very hot temperatures in August--so dress accordingly.

One last thought, please help us pray for cool temperatures, clear skies, and a safe journey for everyone. Our prayer has been answered in the past and it can again this year.
