It’s a sad day when we lose one of our beloved priests. 

The priests we’re praying for in the Diocese of Rochester this week are: 

SUNDAY 9/6            Pope Francis
MONDAY 9/7           Fr. Timothy Niven
TUESDAY 9/8          Fr. Anthony Nketiah
WEDNESDAY 9/9    Fr. Symon Peter Ntaiyia
THURSDAY 9/10      Fr. Malachi Nwosu
FRIDAY 9/11             Fr. John O’Connor
SATURDAY 9/12       Fr. Eugene O’Hara

Our prayer:

O God, Though didst raise Thy servant priests to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ according to the Order of Melchisedech, giving them the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar, and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name.  We beseech Thee to reward their faithfulness and to forget their faults, admitting them speedily into Thy Holy Presence, there to enjoy forever the recompense of their labors.  This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord.  Amen.

Have a blessed week,
Elena & Laurie

Great News!

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

I’m glad that this is an off week Wednesday. Some great news was released this morning.

Venerable Fulton J Sheen is scheduled to be beatified on December 21, 2019!

The beatification ceremony will take place at the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria, Illinois.

Here are links to two articles about the beatification:

An Invitation

We would like to invite you to join us in praying for all of our priests and clergy.  Please feel free to forward this to any others that you think may want to participate.  Regardless of how you heard about us, please send a text to (607)259-1529 or an email to prayers4priests@gmail.com if you are interested in joining us. I’ll be sending an email or text at least weekly with prayers, novenas, etc., so let me know how you would prefer to receive notifications

We are a small informal prayer group made up of faithful Catholics, praying for the sanctification of our Church and our clergy, both here and abroad.  We are doing this in a few different ways.

We will be praying a series of novenas, beginning every other Wednesday.  I’ll send a notification for each one.

Some of us will be fasting on Thursdays for our priests.  It would also be wonderful if some of us could get together once a month to pray a Rosary or a Divine Mercy Chaplet.  We could consider sending cards of encouragement and gratitude to our local priests for their day on the calendar as well.
We are open to any and all suggestions that will help strengthen our Church and our current priests, and will increase new vocations to the priesthood.


Let the praying begin!
God bless,
Laurie Desmarais & Elena Cambio

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining us!
Please be patient as we begin our journey of praying for our priests.
Wherever two or more are gathered (even if it is a virtual gathering),
Jesus is with us.
