A release from the college says it "will be a special Consecration Mass for business leaders who wish to position their companies as instruments of God's service."

The release notes that their are requirements to take part in the Mass, with only those who complete an 8-part preliminary sequence of short videos with prayer and reflection, able to participate, "after which they will be invited to join the Association of Consecrated Business Owners," with the release explaining that "membership opens benefits like community, accountability, business best practices, additional faith formation, and fellowship for Catholic business owners."

Although St. Benedict- Consecration Mass will be the first ever celebrated in the nation, that achievement will be reached by just a few hours, the release notes, with a parish in Cumming, Georgia, located outside of Atlanta, to hold a Consecration Mass at Noon that same day of March 16.
