My name is Michael John Poirier and I am 61 years old. I still recall my father's piano playing as I drifted off to sleep at night. I savored his melodies and sometimes think I get the copyright for the melodies he planted in my heart. He was certainly 'praying' the keys; something I try to imitate on guitar. I remember first feeling a desire to work in family renewal at the age of 16 after the effect I witnessed in my own family after a parish renewal.
Mary Kathryn Cook grew up in Elkhorn, Wisconsin and moved to Arizona to study business at Arizona State University and later helped set up, and was Director of, the first Catechesis of the Good Shepherd school in the Diocese of Phoenix.
While a brother in training with the Western Province Dominicans, I studied Philosophy and Theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA. After two years I discerned religious life was not my calling. 30 days later, while singing in Arizona, I met Mary Cook.
In 1994, after exchanging wedding vows, Mary and I consecrated our marriage to be formed under the mantle of Our Lady of Guadalupe and dedicated ourselves to helping families. It has now been over twenty-six years and we feel called more than ever to continue doing all we can to encourage families to live out their God-given designation as Domestic Church.
Through a 501 (C) (3) non-profit corporation called Holy Family Apostolate – we offer missions, church concerts, home concerts and Holy Hours of Eucharistic adoration at parishes, military bases, classrooms, hospitals, and in homes across the US and in Europe.
Throughout the COVID crisis, we continued our outreach - primarily, but not exclusively, online. Last year we began leading nightly rosaries for families and individuals online. Mary continues offering spiritual mentorship for women online and in person, and I began a spiritual encouragement outreach for men in person and online. One outreach we continued in person was visiting and singing for those near death as well as to comfort those mourn the loss of loved ones. As the nation tries to return to normalcy, we are beginning to travel again.
We highlight the power of the sacraments and how God still calls, renews, and equips his people to change the world. All stories, songs, testimonies, and reflections are in line with the teaching magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church and are free to download, copy, and give away.
