Father Anthony started a prayer group in Vancouver on April 10, 1994, while he was still a high school student. These private prayer groups are now wonderful support for his priestly ministry.
Prayer groups normally meet on Monday (the day off for Father Anthony) and on Sunday evenings. Father Anthony enjoys spending his spare time with friends in prayer, fellowship, and socialization.
Since the end of March 2020, all the prayer group meetings have been online via Zoom.
Currently, the Chinese prayer group is meeting online every Sunday at 7:15 pm (Pacific Time) and the English prayer group meets every Monday at 7 pm (Pacific Time). Our meeting is about one hour 45 minutes with Night Prayer, Rosary (with guided meditations), Talk on Spiritual Life, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
If you are interested to join, please register with Father Anthony by email at firstname.lastname@example.org He is going to add your email to our email list, and you are going to receive meeting reminders with a Zoom link and a weekly review email.
Members of these prayer groups strive to practice the messages given by Our Lady at Fatima.

A Solemn Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(by Pope Pius XII)
Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.
Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as you wish to accomplish your designs in the world.
O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.
We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.
O my God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. (Spring, 1916)
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners. (Fall, 1916)
Most Holy Trinity, I adore You! My God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament. (May 13, 1917)
O Jesus, it is for the love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. (July 13, 1917)
至聖聖三，我欽崇祢，我主，我天主，我愛慕祢於聖體聖事內。(May 13, 1917)
噢耶穌，這是為愛祢，為罪人的悔改，並為賠補冒犯瑪利亞無玷聖心的罪惡。(July 13, 1917)
