Holy Mass will be offered before the day begins, and the sacrament of Reconciliation will be available. Breakfast and lunch are included in the fee of $20 (before March 1; after March 1, the fee is $25; priests and religious are $10).
Also attached is a promotional flyer, if you would be so kind as to post it at your parish or school or share with others.
You are encouraged to register early, as we expect to run out of space (after which we will form a waiting list). Deadline is March 14. Discounted fee if you register before March 1.
We are very excited to bring to Peoria for the first time, Dr. Bryan Thatcher, our speaker for the day. His talks will focus on the Eucharist, Divine Mercy as a Way of Life, Praying for the Sick and Dying. This is an opportunity to learn how to revitalize your family and your parish!
Dr. Thatcher founded Eucharistic Apostles of Divine Mercy in 1996. Their mission is: to spread the mercy of God, primarily through prayer cenacles; promote the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist; encourage recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the sick and dying; and pro-life causes. The ministry received three special Apostolic blessings from Pope St. John Paul II for its work, and the Eucharistic Apostles of Divine Mercy is now active in over 40 countries with over 3,500 cenacles worldwide. Dr. Thatcher has authored several books on Divine Mercy and co-hosted two series on Divine Mercy for EWTN. He recently recorded two EWTN shows that will air in Spring, 2019. The ministry promotes the notion that the Divine Mercy message is a “Way of Life”.
