Youtube videos and parking lot signs promote 33 Days at Florida parish


Something visibly exciting is going on at St. Raphael Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, Florida. 33 Days to Morning Glory consecration organizers, Marybeth Finster and Lisette Shields are using creative ways to connect with parishioners and school families as a group of about 100 reads 33 Days November 29 through January 1.

The first step was to greet the group with the sign "Come, Holy Spirit, Living in Mary" as they enter for their weekly meeting.


Then, the daily prayers are displayed on signs at the school car line. The car line is where the parents line up to pick up their children at the end of the school day~ 
at 3pm, divine mercy hour:)
The 33 Day organizers are also using new media to spread the word and keep everyone up to speed during the 33 days retreat. Fr. Kevin Mackin, OFM,  associate pastor of the parish, has been recording YouTube videos to welcome and encourage participation.

CLICK HERE for Fr. Mackin's week 2 message:


Marybeth Finster commented," I personally feel the “tug of war” between the distractions of the day and what I should be meditating on. This helps me stay focused and on track."

More details to follow as this dynamic parish moves forward to January 1 Consecration.

Group from Holy Spirit and Holy Trinity parishes consecrates November 19


Our Lady of Divine Providence, feast day November 19

November 19, Father Lajo,OMI from Spain celebrated Mass with a consecration group from Holy Spirit Catholic Church and Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Texas. After mass they recited the consecration prayer and Father gave a blessing. Each newly consecrated soul left a rose for Mary at the grotto. 
Afterward at the home of Gabriela Flannery, one of the group coordinators, white and blue balloons were released. Each wrote their name and a petition on a balloon. The group also celebrated participant Babi's birthday and that Babi just finished her chemotherapy treatment.

Gabriela works as a volunteer at the hospital as a Eucharistic Minister. She is always sharing the Divine Mercy message and her love of the Rosary, She also works with NODA (No One Dies Alone) and has been giving out the Marian consecration information.


Leader, Gabriela Flannery in the white coat to the left of Father Lajo.

Msgr Brubaker leads parish consecration with 33 Days to Morning Glory

Our group here at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in New Castle, Delaware made our consecration last night on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7, 2014. Above is a photo of our group, minus Jason who took the photo. 

We certainly had Morning Glory this morning with a blood moon in the Western sky! I saw that glory just before starting our Mass. Thank you Julie for all your help for our group and I hope to be in touch after the holidays for Consoling the Heart of Jesus. God bless you.

Leawood, Kansas Parish group consecrates

left to right:  Sara Hicks, Glenn Wells, Joan Wells, Sharon Nicely, and Chris Nicely.

September 7, the eve of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a group of friends from St. Michael the Archangel parish in Leawood, Kansas consecrated to Jesus through Mary using Fr. Michael Gaitley's book 33 Days to Morning Glory. The met at the parish's Mary Chapel to pray the consecration prayer together with their parochial vicar Fr. Daniel Schmitz.

This is a unique group. They originally came together for Renew 2000 and then did bible studies together. In all, they have been meeting almost 15 years. Glenn Wells writes "out of all the studies we have done so far, the 33 Days to Morning Glory was one of the most spiritual journey's we have taken.  Mary is now part of each of our daily prayer."

There will be many more groups consecrating from Kansas City, KS archdiocese as Archbishop Naumann recently announced that he desires the entire diocese to consecrate December 8. CLICK HERE for more details.

Archbishop Naumann invites everyone to become Consecrated to Jesus through Mary December 8

As the World Synod on the Family begins this October 2014 and the World Meeting of Families takes place in 2015, Kansas City, Kansas Archbishop Naumann thought this would be an ideal time to invite the families of the Archdiocese to join together in consecrating themselves to Jesus through Mary. 
Therefore, Archbishop Naumann has set December 8, 2014 as the date for a diocesan wide consecration to Jesus through Mary using Fr. Michael Gaitley’s book “33 Days to Morning Glory.” The 33 days of prayer and preparation for the consecration will begin on November 5, 2014. 
source: https://www.archkck.org/consecration-through-mary
This is great news that another diocese is offering the consecration. Recently the Diocese of Ft. Wayne-South Bend, Indiana consecrated, CLICK HERE for story. Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades invited all the faithful to use 33 Days to Morning Glory and over 12,000 souls consecrated on August 15, 2014.
Parishes and Individuals who would like to join Archbishop Naumann and all the souls in Kansas City can start making plans now to begin the consecration on November 5. I work with parishes and small groups to share ideas, answer questions and place orders for all the 33 Days to Morning Glory Materials. 
Contact Julie Musselman 727-709-8649  jkmuss@gmail.com
What is really special about using Fr. Gaitley's 33 Days to Morning Glory book and parish program is that everyone can participate on whatever level they can. 
Everyone can easily read the book, just 2 pages a day, no matter how busy or where they are located. Then many people can join others at the parish or in homes to meet weekly for six weeks to view the DVDs and share their thoughts and comments recorded in the participant packet. 

First, parishes need to order their books for the entire parish. I can  offer very LOW parish prices. Call me for a quote.727-709-8649 or email Julie at jkmuss@gmail.com




Next, to get your parish or home group started, you will need one or more Coordinator Kits. These are available with the 33 Days paper back book for $49.95, or withOUT the book for $39.95.
The Coordinator Kit includes a leader guide on how to start your group, Fr. Gaitley's 2 DVD set with 6 sessions, a participant packet, consecration certificate, rosary, prayer card and a few other goodies. 

Then you need advertise your group in the bulletin, through email, website etc and ask parishioners, family, friends to join in the six week group. Once you know how many will join, you need to order the participant packets.  You may need to estimate how many, as more always show up than register.
These are $29.95 with the 33 Days paper back book , or withOUT the book for $19.95. Each participant packet includes a Consecration Certificate.
On the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, make plans to join Archbishop Naumann for the consecration mass, or offer offer a mass or communal consecration at your parish. Many groups pray the consecration prayer together, enjoy fellowship and some do a service project or gift the parish in some way in honor of Our Lady.
I can help with any questions you might have and coach you on how to get started. I can also make it super easy to get all your materials ordered. Just contact me:
