The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Oct. 7, of the Holy Year 2000, marked the beginning of Marian Eucharistic Intercessors (MEIs): on that occasion a Mass was offered for this intention in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
In 2001 the call to intercession for priests found expression in the book Mother of God, Mother of Priests by Kathleen Keefe, MEIs’ inspired founder and dynamic promoter.

2003-2004: Publication and distribution of MEIs prayer book, The Wound in the Heart of Jesus, beginning formation of Eucharistic communities.
2005: A twelve month program of spiritual and doctrinal formation of MEIs began in the USA, Canada, and Ireland.
2009: launching of Family Visitations by the historic Queen of the Clergy statue to the homes of interested intercessors for the spiritual needs of one’s family and relatives, the local parish and diocese, all seminarians and priests, bishops, the Pope, peace in the world.
