They completed their first solo home Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Headmasters Home on April 30, 2021.
They had been meeting for 45 minutes on Tuesday afternoons with David Tay, the Executive Director of the Men of the Sacred Hearts since the beginning of the school year. They reviewed the history and the 12 Promises from Jesus to St. Mary Margaret along with doing role playing a home enthronement.
The young men were quite serious about their task at hand, and while at first somewhat “stiff”, they stayed the course and did a fine job at the second visit where the Enthronement Consecrations promises were made.
Peyton commented that he felt a close connection to the family as we prayed for them before each decade of the Holy Rosary. Each Chesterton student had some classroom exposure to the important action of praying a personal intention for each family member before each decade.
Patrick made the observation that he entered into a “deeper sense of community among my fellow classmates”. As the Chesterton classmates worked together conducting the Home Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in their first home, you could see and feel the bonding as they helped each other over some rough spots.
The plan is to work through the summer of 2021 visiting the students and faculty homes to Enthrone Jesus for the family.
Louis made the comment; “I was very content with the fact that everyone there was in unity with prayer, and I bet our Blessed Mother was smiling down upon us”.
I’m with Louis, Our Mother and Her Son were surely happy to see the focus and serious intent played out as the Chesterton Men of the Sacred Hearts Honor Society launched successfully in their first year of opening in Clinton Township.
The future calls for these leaders to now take the new incoming students of Chesterton, Our Lady of Guadalupe, under their mentorship and show them how to conduct a home Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Father Mateo’s desire was to spread the devotion of Consecrating the Sacred Heart in homes was based on St. Margaret Mary's experience when Jesus appeared to her and gave her "The twelve promises". The ninth promise was his appeal to put His image in a place of honor in the family home. Father Larkin took up the mission of spreading this devotion.
Mr. John LoVasco contacted Fr. Larkin in June of 1964 about beginning a chapter of the Men of the Sacred Hearts in the Detroit area. We have been spreading this devotion to honor Jesus in Consecrating families and homes to His Sacred Heart in southeast Michigan since that time.
