In a letter to the Priests, Deacons, Religious Educators, Pastoral Leaders and Faithful of the Diocese of Peoria, Bishop Daniel R. Jenky specifically suggests that parishes, schools, and families consider a 30-day Marian Consecration as outlined in a book by Father Michael Gaitly, MIC. The Bishop is making the book, "33 Days to Morning Glory," available free of charge to parishes and schools while supplies last. This offering is done through the generosity of a donor.

Setting hearts Afire at the Columbus Catholic Women's Conference
Asst. Director of Parish Evangelization for the Association of Marian Helpers, Kelly Wahlquist, lights a fire in 2,000 women at the CCWC on February 12, 2012! Kelly spoke about the soon to be released program that follows Fr. Michael Gaitley's popular book 33 Days to Morning Glory and she challenged the crowd to become "Catholic Pyromaniacs" spreading the fire of the New Evangelization from heart to heart! Take a moment and listen to her 8 minute passion-packed address to the women of Columbus. It's amazing to hear how Our Lady and the Holy Spirit are spreading Hearts Afire... by just word of mouth! (and love of heart!)
The aim of the Hearts Afire Program is to introduce you to one of the “renewed spiritual efforts” for the local church (the parish) that’s meant to help rekindle a fire of enthusiasm for living and spreading the faith.
