Mass Offered for all the Members of the Children's Rosary on February 25th 2021


A Mass was offered on February 25th for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary.  We continue to have a Mass said for the this intention on the 25th of the month. The Eucharist is such a powerful gift from Our Lord that when I wanted to extend thanksgiving to all of you I knew of no better way to express my gratitude.  May Our Lord's love be poured down on all of you through the powerful sacrifice of the Holy Mass.

Join Bishop Keenan for the Rosary Each Evening


We are excited to share that following the Consecration to Jesus through Mary which Bishop Keenan led over the past 34 day, he has decided to continue to lead the Rosary nightly. The last 9 days of the Consecration Bishop Keenan led a Rosary along with the readings in the book Child Consecration: To Jesus through Mary—Following in the Spirit of St. Thérèse, the Little Flower. He has decided to continue praying LIVE each night at 9PM local time in Scotland (4PM ET) on his Facebook page. He has chosen to use the Children's Rosary book to guide the reflections through the Rosary. We are grateful to Bishop Keenan for continuing to lead prayers each night. We see this as a beautiful fruit of the Consecration journey. The response from the Consecration has been wonderful and many have begun the practice of praying as a family in their homes. As a Shepherd, we thank Bishop Keenan, for building on what was begun through the Consecration and helping the flock to grow strong in the practice of praying a Rosary daily. 

To join Bishop Keenan nightly for the Rosary visit his Facebook page:

Thank you to all who joined us for the Consecration to Jesus through Mary which ended February 11th 2021


If you enjoyed the Consecration journey consider giving a book to family or friends. There is certainly no time like the present to give such a gift. There is always something rather urgent about a suggestion given by a snowman in the sun.

Thank you all!

Here is the LINK for information about purchasing the Consecration book.

Consecration to Jesus through Mary being led by Bishop Keenan

It has been a blessed Consecration journey with Bishop Keenan. Each night at 9PM local time in Scotland, Bishop Keenan leads the Consecration using the book Child Consecration: To Jesus through Mary—Following in the Spirit of St. Thérèse, the Little Flower. He had wondered if over time people might drop off through the many days. This has not happened. Instead of people feeling tired of the days of preparation for Consecration, the sentiment has been one of gratitude and feeling that the time is going too quickly. 

Below are some comments that were made during the Consecration evenings Bishop Keenan has led:

* I am surprised I haven't missed a single day. Normally, I am not able to do such things. I don't think I have finished a single Novena in my life. What a blessing.
* Such a lovely reading. Gives so much hope. Thank you Bishop John.
* 17 days of pure joy wonderful to be with you all. Good night and God bless Bishop John and all
* T hank you bishop John. The consecration became a focus point of our family of 6. God Bless you
* Truly wonderful and calming
* Thank you Bishop John. Just love getting to know Our Lady more in this consecration. 
* Thank you so much Bishop John its been a long time since I have felt so peaceful and loved before going to sleep
* Lovely to be with you in prayer tonight. Excited for tonight’s gardening. Love from Bridget, 12 years old.
* Thank you so much Bishop for leading us in this most beautiful Consecration
* Thank you bishop for this brilliant service. There are so many of us joined in prayer and it so comforting. A big family united in prayer.
* Thank you very much Bishop John. God Bless and protect you always. It's a been a quick 27 nights. Too quick! 
* Really going to miss all this 

If you did not begin the Consecration on January 9th, consider using the recordings to accompany your Consecration journey for your chosen start date.

To join Bishop Keenan live each day at 9PM local time in Scotland (4PM ET), visit his Facebook page. We also have been posting the recordings each day on the website for the Child Consecration book: If you click on the link to view the online Consecration journey, you will be presented with a list of the 33 days of the Consecration. At the bottom of each day of the online Consecration there is a link to watch Bishop Keenan lead the prayers and the readings of that day.

Box to Kenya Arrives

We have been busy sending boxes and packages out to existing Children's Rosary groups. The Children's Rosary is expanding in Sultan Hamud, Kenya. There was also a request for Child Consecration books for the groups. On January 29th we received word that the box of Consecration books and rosaries had arrived. Br. Cleophus sent the picture above. He reported that very soon they would be starting the Consecration. Enclosed in the box were 30 Consecration books and 75 rosaries. As soon as we raise enough money for shipping, we will send Br. Cleophus more rosaries. He reports in the town of Simba, where he has begun the Children's Rosary at St. Mary's Church, there are 200 children waiting for rosaries. The 75 rosaries we sent will help but we hope to send more. Thank you to all those who have sent us handmade rosaries. We also appreciate those who make donations that help us respond to these requests.
