Mississippi parish goes through Consoling the Heart of Jesus retreat

About 85 souls from St. James Catholic Church in Gulfport, MS consecrated to Jesus through Mary last year with Fr. Michael Gaitley's 33 Days to Morning Glory retreat. As with most 33 Days groups, those in the retreat wanted to continue learning more and so then began Fr. Gaitley's second retreat Consoling the Heart of Jesus. The new "Consolers" concluded their study by celebrating mass together on April 12, Divine Mercy Sunday.

If you or your parish have consecrated with 33 Days and would like to find out more about Consoling, just contact me! I'd be glad to help you start the Consoling the Heart of Jesus retreat with your friends or parish. It is a 10 retreat and ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.

If you wonder what's next after Consoling, I'd be glad to tell you about Wisdom and Works of Mercy. Now is the Time! All of these retreats fit in beautifully with the Year of Mercy Pope Francis has called to begin December 8. CLICK HERE for a Year of Mercy Parish Plan using Fr Gaitley's retreats.

Fr. Steve Ryan and group at Mary Help of Christians consecrate


March 25, 2015 a large group of parishioners at Mary Help of Christians Parish consecrated to Jesus through Mary using the book and retreat materials for 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley. Mary Help of Christians is a Tampa, FL Salesian run parish and retreat center. Their pastor, Fr. Steve Ryan is on fire with the Holy Spirit and has a deep love of Our Lady.

Kay Conroy led the group. When I asked Kay for a quote about her experience with leading the group she said "I think that what means the most to me is that they want more! They actually wanted to all come back the next Monday! It's that fire that we need to keep burning."

Many of those recently consecrated will begin the next retreat Consoling the Heart of Jesus. 

To get your group started, just call me! I can help with ideas, best practices and ordering

96 Souls Consecrate in Cleveland, Ohio

On March 25, 2015 the Feast of the Annunciation, 96 parishioners from St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Cleveland, Ohio were consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary using Fr. Michael Gaitley's book 33 Days to Morning Glory.

Leader Matthew Lewis writes "After leading five 33 Days consecration groups in parishes throughout this diocese, I am really beholding what I pray every day in the consecration prayer, "Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for bringing the greatest glory to God."  I am witnessing how Our Lady is using me to bring others to her.  

My joy, my reward is to see all the excited hearts at the weekly classes.  I see a great hunger within these parishioners, but also I get to see them happily being fed!  "Hearts Afire Parish Program" is such an apropos name."

St. Patrick parish incorporated many of the Marian Apparitions in their small group as well as joining together for mass, song and rosary.

The Hearts Afire Parish Program begins with the 6 week 33 Days to Morning Glory retreat where people consecrate their lives to Jesus through Mary. Next groups go to the Consoling the Heart of Jesus 10 week retreat where they learn about Divine Mercy and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Then they complete this "lay formation" program by doing Wisdom and Works of Mercy (WWM) over 10 to 14 weeks. WWM uses two books The 'One Thing' is Three and You Did It To Me. In this retreat, participants learn about the Holy Trinity and how it impacts EVERYTHING. Then they learn how they can go about doing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy with You Did It To Me

All the books and retreat materials are written by Fr. Michael Gaitley. I would be glad to talk with YOU and help you start these amazing retreats at your parish!
