Fr. Charles Becker
Marian Movement of Priests
Fr. Charles Becker is a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago and is the National Responsible for the Marian Movement of Priests, a worldwide Movement begun by Our Lady in Fatima through Fr. Stefano Gobbi who received interior locutions explaining the need for Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Three years after his ordination in 1986, Fr. Becker was invited to go to Medjugorje. Upon his return he was introduced to the prayer group format of the Marian Movement of Priests based on Our Lady’s messages to Fr. Stefano Gobbi of Milan, Italy. These experiences coupled with his Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in October 1990 began to change Father’s whole perspective on his life as a priest, of the Church and of the world. He began to develop Cenacles of the Marian Movement of Priests and other Marian Rosary Groups throughout the Archdiocese in response to Our Lady’s call to prayer in order to assist others who had similar experiences.
Father Becker has assisted approximately 2 to 3 trips to Medjugorje yearly since 1990 and has participated in the annual International Marian Movement of Priest Retreat in Italy since 1997. Father has been a guest homilist on EWTN.
