Have you heard about the Seven Sister Apostolate?

From a team member (while this ministry is for women, men may sub when the 'sister' needs it.)

"Thank you for your letter and information on the Seven Sisters Apostolate.  I was very happy to learn about this wonderful initiative of prayer for priests and bishops.  Thank you for your this beautiful gift!  Please extend my thanks also to the other sisters who will also be offering a weekly Holy Hour for us."  Bishop Kevin Rhoades



"One of the greatest gifts people can give a priest is to pray and offer sacrifice for him.  To know that I have a fellow sister in Christ offering up a holy hour each day for my priesthood is a beautiful gift to me and for that gift I can only say, "Thank you!"  The Seven Sisters Apostolate is wonderful ministry, and I am so grateful that it is in our parish of Our Lady of Good Hope."

Fr. Daniel Whelan, S.T.L.



"I am surprised by the encouragement and unity that I feel with my whole parish knowing that there is at least one of them making a Holy Hour for me each day. Also, I am so humbled by the thought that if these few women are willing to make a commitment of intentional prayer for me, then how many more am I unaware of that are as equally devoted to praying for their pastor! I know this is of God because it is forming unity between clergy and laity, which is much needed after a summer of revelations that has threatened the relationship between the two"

- Fr. Jonathan Norton



"As a priest, and a new priest at that, you hear people say often that they are praying for you. This is encouraging, heartwarming, and essential. So, when I discovered that I had seven women particularly praying for me, one each day, a dedicated Holy Hour, my heart was overwhelmed with gratitude. Those prayers mean a great deal to me, that doesn't take away from the hundreds of others of people who I know are praying for me but these women are MY prayer warriors, ensuring that I live out my vocation to the Priesthood with absolute holiness. I will be forever thankful to them."

Father Jay Horning
