Who do we support?

One way that Ave Philomena, Inc. will look to fulfill its purpose is through providing support for the apostolic endeavors of Fr. Anthony Pillari and Regina Angelorum Press. Fr. Pillari’s priestly ministry includes bringing content and resources to the faithful seeking to learn the Catholic faith and develop their prayer life on their journey to knowing, loving, and serving Jesus Christ. One such resource is the Our Lady of Fatima Rosary Crusade providing Catholics throughout the world the opportunity to pray the Daily rosary. You can also join Fr. Pillari every First Saturday of the month, where he will guide you through 15 minutes of prayer on each of the mysteries of the Holy Rosary. These meditations can be found on the Regina Angelorum website.

DONATE TODAY and help us build a chapel matching the dimensions and feel of the Holy House of Loreto!



As one of its first projects, Ave Philomena Inc. has developed a beautiful Kansas property which provides a contemplative setting and housing for Fr. Pillari and visiting priests.

This provides:

  • a chapel to pray the daily worldwide rosary
  • a library
  • supporting spaces to support Fr. Pillari’s work in providing content and programs for the faithful


While we do continue to work on the House of Loreto complex, we now have embarked on an ambitious project of completing a 21,000+ sq ft convent for twenty contemplative sisters that will be moving to the property near the House of Loreto complex.  This wonderful addition will be a crucial part of the ongoing ministry.

Our Patron Saints

The Immaculate Virgin Mary and St. Philomena

Ave Philomena, Inc. pursues its purpose under the patronage and intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary and St. Philomena. Not much is known about St. Philomena. Her tomb was only discovered in 1802, but it is believed that this young girl gave her life for Christ, achieving the crown of martyrdom in the early Church.

The Curé D’ars and his…

“Dear Little Saint”

In the short time following the discovery of her remains, St. Philomena quickly became one of the greatest intercessors in the history of the Church. A great many miracles are attributed to her intercession including cures, healings, and conversions. St. John Vianney (the Curé of Ars) had a very special devotion to St. Philomena. He would send sinners and unbelievers to St. Philomena to ask for their conversion and attributed many of the miracles that occurred to her intercession. Even his own healing when he was very near to death is attributed to St. Philomena’s intercession.
