"Together, we are facing a time of unprecedented spiritual and physical challenges" states Fr. Richard Heilman, spiritual director of CEMA and spiritual leader of the U.S. Grace Force.

Fr. Heilman invites us to: "Discover how you can unite your prayer with thousands of others during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond."
CEMA was formed to unify Eucharistic and Marian Apostolates in order to magnify the efforts to more effectively reclaim for Jesus Christ our families, our Church and our nations. In addition to supporting each apostolate's initiatives, the coalition seeks ways to join forces to accomplish that mission.
"It brought me great joy and encouragement to discover the work of the Coalition of Eucharistic and Marian Apostolates. As rector of Canada's National Marian Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape, I look forward to partnering with CEMA to make Mary more widely known and loved; especially through these uncertain times!" states Bishop Pierre-Olivier Tremblay, O.M.I.
