Consoling the Heart of Jesus 10 week retreat

Many who have consecrated using 33 Days to Morning Glory may want to consider participating in or offering the Consoling The Heart of Jesus retreat.

Below is an overview of how Consoling can be done over a 10 week period. 
Many groups are preparing the retreat to coordinate with June 27, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus 2014. Groups would begin the fourth week of April in order to end on or around Friday June 27.

This schedule below and attached is particularly beautiful as Divine Mercy Sunday is April 27. April 27 is also the date of Blessed Pope John Paul II's canonization.
I can think of no better "bookends" than Divine Mercy Sunday and the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to frame this retreat.

Like 33 Days, I can help you get a group started with ideas and help with ordering materials.
We have a coordinator kit w/ leader guide, participant packet and DVDs and we have the participant packet as well.

We now have special parish pricing on the book and prayer companion available to parishes, please contact me for details. jkmuss@gmail.com
