A little about me and this ministry...


Motto: Ad Jesum Per Mariam
(To Jesus Through Mary)

Peace and Blessings ~ Welcome to the Guadalupe House!

My name is Peter and I am a corporate office worker from the island of Oahu, Hawaii.  That's been my "day job" for the past 25+ years... but I also have a "side job" that I've been doing for almost as long a time - this ministry.

"Guadalupe House" initially started in 1994 as weekly rosary prayer meetings I led in a little apartment at Keolu (Enchanted Lakes), Kailua, which were attended by family, friends, and even a few priests. These gatherings lasted for the 9 years I lived in Keolu; highly blessed and formative years I still fondly look back on.

   
The outdoor shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe at my former studio and some of the regular attendees at my weekly prayer meetings in the place we came to call "Guadalupe House".

After a 7-year hiatus and much prayer and discernment, Guadalupe House resurfaced in October 2010 as a personal lay-ministry aimed at spreading devotion to Our Lady and the Saints.

Using a few Marian pilgrim statues and dozens of Sacred Relics gifted to me throughout the years by friends and various religious associations, this ministry evolved to conduct presentations and monthly First Saturday Rosary Meetings at St. Anthony of Padua Church, Kailua

Participants are encouraged to exercise prayer and to imitate the virtues of Mary and the Saints; to venerate their relics; to frequently invoke their intercession for personal needs. Subsequently, many heavenly favors, conversions, and remarkable signs have resulted for which I and, others involved, thank and praise the Lord.

This work has since been placed under the patronage and protection of St. Philomena and Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich (a relic custodian, herself). Furthermore, this blog is more than just about promoting this ministry - it's also serious about spreading awareness of, and devotion to, the following:

+  The Holy Rosary Devotion

+  The Holy Face Devotion, as revealed by Jesus to Bl. Maria Pierina de Micheli and Sr. Marie of St. Peter

+  The Blessed Virgin, under her titles of 'Virgin of Guadalupe', 'Maria, Rosa Mystica'and the 'Queen of Peace of Medjugorje'

+  The veneration of the Saints and Blesseds of the Catholic Church, and their hallowed remains

   
My personal goal is to inspire people by sharing the lives, faith-lessons, and miracles of Our Lady and the Saints.

Presently, with the Lord's blessings, Guadalupe House continues to be active with the support of my parish priests and diocesan approval. So far this ministry has been able to reach hundreds of souls - young and mature, alike - via statue/relic pilgrim visits, relic exhibits, and speaking presentations at 11 parishes; 12 homes; 3 parochial schools; a Diocesan Faith Formation Conference; the local Daughters of St. Paul Store; and the inaugural St. Damien & St. Marianne Catholic Conference in 2017.  Prayer meetings are ongoing and requests for presentations are still being received (for detailed info concerning the presentations, click here).

So thank you for visiting Guadalupe House - stay a while... explore... pray... meet the featured Saints/Blesseds... browse the Art Gallery... and come back often to meet more Saints, our heavenly friends. May you then leave Guadalupe House with deeper faith... more spiritual knowledge... and a greater appreciation of the important role Our Lady and the Saints play in the life of the Church.

God bless you and may Our Lady and the Saints watch over you.


In Christ,

Peter, Relic Custodian
