PENITENT SOLDIERS OF MARY
COME JOIN THE MISSION OF OUR LADY
OUR STORY & HOLY MISSION
Since starting the Penitent Soldiers of Mary in February of 2022, we have witnessed an “explosion of grace” with miraculous conversions, healings, and freedom from spiritual affliction. Members of our family trees and beyond are being beautifully transformed. Loved ones are being drawn back to the Sacramental life of the Catholic Church.
The Penitent Soldiers of Mary live under a communal rule of life to imitate holiness and pray in the Spirit for the healing and liberation of souls. This includes people of all ages and those facing addiction.
Penitent Soldiers are uniquely devoted to the interior life, while proclaiming, teaching, and living the truths of the Catholic Faith. Steeped in tradition and reverence, the Penitent Soldiers of Mary dutifully present individuals to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary to build up the kingdom of God.
WHY JOIN THE PENITENT SOLDIERS OF MARY AND LIVE A RULE OF LIFE?
To grow in holiness and interior devotion to Jesus through Mary by living a life of discipleship centered on prayer. The Rule of Life offers a disciplined approach to contemplative prayer and communal fellowship for all those seeking to serve as authentic witnesses to the Gospel.
HOW WILL MY INVOLVEMENT STRENGTHEN MY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT?
Mary will train her faithful soldiers to serve as vessels to her spouse, the Holy Spirit. Mary is the perfect model of humility and obedience, which opens the doors of the soul to the workings of the Spirit.
THURSDAY NIGHT ADORATION LITURGIES
As Penitent Soldiers, we live a communal rule of life and gather for a weekly holy hour to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Here, we dutifully present our prayers to Jesus for those we love, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Join us in person or simply adore and pray alongside us via livestream.

HEALING SERVICES VIDEO
My brother, Rudy, came to see Deacon Tom and me for healing prayer in January 2023. He also attended one of our Penitent Soldiers of Mary monthly healing services at St. Gilbert and returned to the sacrament of confession for the first time in over 23 years. After 3 consecutive days of healing prayer and receiving the sacrament of confession, he received a lot of spiritual and emotional healing. He returned to Texas and had the grace to meet with the Archdiocesan tribunal about obtaining an annulment from a marriage that had ended back in 2000. Within 7 months of submitting his annulment paperwork, he received approval of his annulment. Rudy has shared that his receipt of this healing prayer has truly changed his life for the better. He is now feeling drawn to go to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and attend mass more than once a week. It has brought him a lot of peace and strength as he continues to face the many trials of life including the loss of several close family members and friends. When your focus is on Christ, you can handle anything!

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”
Luke 4: 18-19
