The Eucharistic Procession covered all of Eden Hill on a cold January Day.

By Melanie Williams (Jan 9, 2017)
Today at the Marian Helpers Center, Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, our "Fr. Joseph," reconsecrated the whole Marian Helpers Center and all of Eden Hill to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and St. Joseph. Father Chris was joined by Fr. Anthony Gramlich, MIC, the Shrine rector; Fr. Bob Vennetti, MIC, the Shrine vice-rector; Fr. Thaddaeus Lancton, MIC; and Fr. Vincent Bako, a visiting priest from Nigeria. The Mass celebrating the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord was followed by prayers reconsecrating the Marian Helpers Center and all of Eden Hill, and a Eucharistic Procession.

See photos from the day!

Watch Fr. Chris' homily from the Mass and parts of the Prayer of Consecration and Eucharistic Procession!

Yes! Re-consecrate. It has deep meaning for God and for us. The first blessing is good, yes, but like The Divine Mercy Image shows, we must keep blessing.

Maria 3 - Jan 10, 2017

Good to hear of this and hope all who are one way or other connected to The Marians have also been part of same , thus to be in our destiny of ever taking in deeper of His Spirit and the love from our Triune God and Father.

Hope to see the answer to a sort of query ; it is about the deeper meaning of The Blood and Water .
Would like to think that same stands as an icon of The Lord's life and its love and power in The Spirit - the love from and for His parents all through the years in Nazareth, the power against the enemy during the fasting , in all the healing and miraculous encounters thereafter , in the deliverance of Magdalene and the demoniac , the compassion in the feeding of the hungry , the humility of trusting in The Father all through The Passion , the grace of mercy and forgiveness towards those who know not , the deliverance from powers of evil for us all .
That deeper awareness of the power of that prayer invoked on behalf of others or ourselves, thus to free us from what can often come into our hearts and minds as troubling thoughts of facing such in us or others - the fears , envy etc and invoking The Lord , His love, as The Blood and Water in to all the above moments in to our hearts and those we are called to pray with and for -to thank Him for what he is doing with us and for us all .
Thank You !
