33 Days to Morning Glory
In “33 Days to Morning Glory,” Father Michael E. Gaitley highlights the teachings of St. Louis de Montfort, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Blessed John Paul II, and St. Maximilian Kolbe. Through this book, we embark on a path to the mystical wonder of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The format for the 33 day preparation to Total Consecration is:
Register for books by signing up on a sheet posted in the Parish Library (in the Fr Byrne Room at Church). You may also sign up by emailing your name and contact information to email@example.com. Books may be picked up in the Library after the 8:00 am Mass on Sunday, December 22 or before the kickoff event on Saturday, December 28. A free-will offering will be accepted for the book.
Father Steve will lead an event on Saturday, December 28 after the 8:00 am Mass to begin the 33 days to consecration. On December 28 you will start reading the daily reflections and prayers of Day 1 in the “33 Days to Morning Glory.” This will take about 10 minutes. Continue daily readings until February 2, 2014, the Feast of the Presentation. On Sunday, February 2, Father Steve will witness our consecration after the Noon Mass. This will be followed by a time of sharing. Please then join us in the Social Hall following Mass for refreshments. For more information please visit the Total Consecration website.
Services with individual confession will be held on Tuesday, December 17 at Noon & 7 PM.
Confessions will also be heard on Thursdays (December 5th and 12th) at Noon and on Saturdays December 7th, 14th, and 21st) at 2 PM and will end no later than 3:45 PM.

Read the Catechism in a Year
Study the Gospels in a Year
We have two amazing options for you this year...
Read the Catechism in a Year (starting from the beginning)
Send people to flocknote.com/catechism to sign up!
NEW: Study the Gospels in a Year (w/ Ignatius Study Bible commentary)

Both are free and life-changing. And also great to do with a group of friends. Both will be kicking off anew during the first week of Advent (so very soon!), so let's make sure we invite as many people to start from the beginning with us as possible!
Thank you and God bless you,
