I am so blessed to have been able to lead a 33 Days to Morning Glory group retreat at St. Sylvester Catholic Church in Gulf Breeze, FL.  Above is a photo taken on our Consecration Day, Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, June 8, 2013.   We had two other members who were not available and consecrated privately:  Terri  and Pam.

Three of the people in this session have already (or are going to) contact others about 33 Days to Morning Glory retreats and I have been asked to do another group retreat for the parish with Consecration on October 7, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.  This request came from the coordinator of our adult faith formation programs; she wanted the retreat just before the start of all the Adult Faith Formation programs beginning in October.

I will also be contacting other parishes in my area to encourage them to do the group retreats.

Thank you for this deeply spiritual program; it has so helped me to be in a relationship with Mary, my Mother.

May God continue to bless Fr. Gaitley, MIC, and the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception.
