We meet weekly on Wednesdays after Mass, pray daily.
Seven Sisters Apostolate
The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call for women to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of our parish priests. It is a “holy wasting” or “lavishing of prayer” for their deeper conformity to Christ. Each woman commits to a Holy Hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week. The Holy Hour is ideally prayed in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, either in an Adoration Chapel or in front of a Tabernacle. We ask for a one-year commitment, renewable each May.
Frequency: Weekly, Duration: One Hour
Prayer Service Ministry
This ministry provides a communion prayer service when the parish priest is unavailable or when a priest cannot be secured to offer Mass at the 9 AM daily Mass time. The prayer service leader needs to be an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, will lead prayer, reads the Gospel after the first reading and the responsorial Psalm is read. Then will read a reflection on the Gospel from a Catholic source. Training and resources are available for both the prayer service format and to become a Eucharistic Minister.
Frequency: Once every 6 to 8 weeks. Time Required: 1 hour to prepare the gospel reflection and intentions.
