I’m sad to say that Fr. George Heyman passed away suddenly this week.  Let us all remember him, along with all of our deceased priests, especially on Friday.

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

SUNDAY 4/18            Fr. Thomas Mull
MONDAY 4/19          Fr. John Mulligan
TUESDAY 4/20          Fr. Kevin Murphy
WEDNESDAY 4/21    Fr. Thomas Nellis
THURSDAY 4/22       Fr. Timothy Niven
FRIDAY 4/23              Deceased Priests
SATURDAY 4/24        Fr. Symon Peter Ntaiyia

Our prayer this week is quite short, but our Mother knows our hearts:

Immaculate Mary, please continue to protect, strengthen and guide all of our priests, deacons, religious and seminarians and give them the power to save souls.

Have a blessed week,
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.
