Dear Friends and Benefactors,
We have been notified via internet today that Fr. David Hewko intends as of now no longer to remain with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Seminary in Boston Kentucky USA. As Superior of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel I would like to request all to pray for Fr. Hewko that he may find his way “back to his Father’s house.” We are grateful for his help and fidelity over his years here in our work for the Salvation of Souls and preservation of our most Holy Faith. The door is always open for his return. Please keep our 15 Seminarians, 2 postulants and 3 priests and all helpers in Our Lord’s vineyard in your prayers as well.
In Christ the King,
Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary of The Society of St. Pius X—Marian Corps, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Boston KY Chapel, Seminary, Convent, of all souls, and all things entrusted in anyway to our care.
(adapted from and in the spirit of the Consecration of the entire Society of St. Pius X by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1984)
To thee, O Immaculate Mother of God, do we have recourse in this supreme hour of mankind’s need, amidst such storms indeed as have never been known, shaking Holy Mother Church to her very foundations. Thou, who standing by the foot of the Cross, didst once share so closely in the sufferings of thy Divine Son, with what compassion art thou not moved today for the suffering of His Mystical Body, the Church!
Whilst outside the Church, Communism has so spread its errors in all directions that the Church herself is infected by them, at the same time within her very bosom the virus of a false ecumenism poisons souls without number, either tearing them away or keeping them outside of the unity of the true Faith and the one and only Ark of Salvation. Now in this 21st century, these “errors of Russia” spoken of by thee at Fatima and propagated by that “Wicked Council” of which thou hast spoken, have found their way deeply into the very bowels of the Traditional movement of reform, including our Priestly Society of St. Pius X, which has already been consecrated to thee.
Amidst so many ruins, so many betrayals, may it please Almighty God, that we as true sons of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre the founder of our Society of St. Pius X, continue his command in our Marian Corps “We have to build while others are demolishing. Th e crumbled citadels have to be rebuilt, the bastions of Faith have to be reconstructed; firstly the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of all times, which forms saints; then our chapels, monasteries, our large families, our enterprises faithful to the social politics of the Church, our politicians determined to make the politics of Jesus Christ – this is a whole fiber of Christian social life, Christian customs, Christian reflexes, which we have to restore.” Following an ancient example, may we at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, a small band of rebuilders, who being truly aware of our own frailty turn again today to thee, Virgin most powerful Help of Christians. For completely distrusting in our own strength, so little before the magnitude of the task entrusted to us, we wish to place ourselves under thy motherly and powerful protection, O Virgin who art more terrible than an army set at battle array, to whom from the beginning it was promised that thou wouldst tread upon the head of the serpent.
Amidst those dangers hanging over our heads, we beg and beseech God, Who has deigned to call us to the service of His Church, that He deign to seal and confirm our calling through thee, O Ark of the Covenant!
And so, O Immaculate Virgin, before thy Throne of Grace today we prostrate ourselves, and desiring to increase thy praise and glory so that to the filial love of Christ thy Son towards thee, O most sweet Mother of ours, we may here and now add our humble contribution to thee, beneath the most special title of thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
We irrevocably consecrate our Priestly Society of St. Pius X—Marian Corps connected in anyway to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Chapel, with its priests, seminarians, and brothers, sisters, oblates and tertiaries, and with all its spiritual family.
In order that thou shouldst be now the Lady and Queen of our branch of the Society of St. Pius X under thy special protection called “Marian Corps” at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel, by a perpetual donation into thy hands, we offer and we entrust our possessions and our homes that they may truly belong to thee: our bodies and also our souls, indeed, our whole selves we hand over and consecrate, that thou mayest ever have us ready at thy command.
Th e souls also entrusted to us we hand over to thee, that thou mayest guard them beneath thy motherly care. Finally, our apostolate we commend to thee, and we relinquish it that it may be wholly thine, O Queen of Apostles!
Th us, Our Priestly Society of St. Pius X—Marian Corps, connected with Our Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel including its seminary, convent, as well as all the souls that thou hast allowed or wilt allow us to have any care of past, present and future are now wholly thy domain!
Hold us so firmly, O Tower of David, that we may never turn from the right path. O Virgin most Faithful, keep every member most unshakably attached to thee. Guard our Faith virginally intact, O Virgin most Pure, thou who hast received the power to crush all heresies throughout the entire world.
Keep for the Church, O thou who art Full of Grace, her Holy Sacrifi ce of the Mass in union with and never separated from the most holy and inviolate Faith of our Fathers, according to the ancient and venerable Roman rite, sure conveyor of grace, and to it keep us most faithful. May that Grace of which thou alone art the Guardian and Mediatrix efficaciously be given to us to reject for all our days the vile Modernism, Evolutionism, as well as all heresies and errors whatsoever, including their so called “liturgical” expressions of the New Mass and whatever other novelties have already been promoted, or may be promoted in any way by the enemies of Th y Divine Son, Who is the only Way for us, the only Truth for us, and our only Life.
Cause to flourish within us, O Queen of all Saints, the holiness of the priesthood, of religion, of the family according to the holy desires of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre when he consecrated that Society, which thou didst allow him to found, up to thee. Guard, O Mother of Divine Grace, the Society of St. Pius X, including especially this little enclave of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, as a fruitful and ever-living branch of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, as an oasis of thy love and grace in the vast desert of this modern world.
Obtain for us the grace, O Mother of the Church, whereby we may from day to day become in the hands of God instruments more docile and more apt for the saving of the greatest number of souls, including our own. Th at we may know that thou hast heard our prayers, O Virgin most Clement, send us those many workers whom the Divine Lord of the Harvest calls into His mission-fields as well as the greatest harvest of souls.
Grant us, finally, O Mother of the Sovereign High Priest, the grace with which to work for the restoration of all things in Christ, especially the Catholic priesthood and thereby for the splendor of the priestly Soul of Christ, illuminated by Whose rays may persons and families and nations soon obtain the establishing of His Kingdom.
Relying on our title of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary, we promise thee, O Queen of Martyrs and Confessors, that we shall labor until our last breath for the restoring of all things in Christ, for the spreading of His Kingdom, and for the preparing of the glorious Triumph of thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Mary. Amen.
