2018 Covenant Day Celebration at MPH

A beautiful Covenant Day Celebration at Mother of Perpetual Help!

Pictured are those who made our Covenant Day Celebration special and heartwarming.  We had a good group of 14 people including one little boy.  We sang On This Day O Beautiful Mother and prayed the Rosary with meditations taken from the Requests of the Covenant of Love.  We presented our Mother and Queen with our striving to make our Covenant Day Celebration fruitful for her Schoenstatt Work.  A short commentary was given about the requirements needed to make the Covenant of Love as an Associate Member of Schoenstatt.  Afterwards, those who have made the Covenant of Love renewed their Covenant Promises.  Three Missionaries of the Pilgrim Mother Apostolate renewed their commitment for another year:  Linda Jeanneret, Chris Poddig, and Carol Mechler.  We ended the evening prayer service with our consecration prayer, My Queen, my Mother.  We gathered up our Auxiliary Shrine and Pilgrim Mother Shrines and processed over to the Parish Center for refreshments and fellowship.  We enjoyed the evening very much and hope more people will join us next time. Covenant Day blessings to all!

Cathedral of St. Peter MTA Prayers

The Schoenstatt Illinois group at the Cathedral of St. Peter met October 1, 2014 to pray for the first time to Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt following the enthronement on September 27, 2014 in Mary’s Chapel.

Mother Thrice Admirable sent us a special gift – the presence of missionary priest, Fr. Peter Gevera, as we prayed for the growth of the Schoenstatt movement, for growth of Schoenstatt at the Cathedral, for the sainthood of our founder, Fr. Joseph Kentenich, for the soul of Susana Fernandez who started Schoenstatt at the Cathedral of St. Peter, and for the special intentions of all our Schoenstatt members.


MTA Enthronement at the Cathedral of St. Peter

On September 27, 2014, the Cathedral of St. Peter in the Belleville Diocese enthroned our Blessed Mother as Our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt.

The Schoenstatt members of the Cathedral of St. Peter make a commitment to serve Our Mother Thrice Admirable (MTA) in our parishes.
