Many of you have asked for an update on our priest with the sinus issues.  There has been some improvement, but still a way to go.  Keep praying!

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

SUNDAY 3/7               Pope Francis
MONDAY 3/8              Fr. Stanley Kacprzak
TUESDAY 3/9             Fr. Stephen Karani
WEDNESDAY 3/10    Fr. Winfried Kellner
THURSDAY 3/11        Fr. Robert Kennedy
FRIDAY 3/12               All Deacons
SATURDAY 3/13        Fr. Roy Kiggins

In this Year of St. Joseph, in this month dedicated to him, our prayer this week is a prayer to St. Joseph for priests:

O illustrious patriarch St. Joseph, who carried the infant Jesus in thy blessed arms and who, during the space of 30 years, lived in the most intimate familiarity with him, take under thy powerful protection those whom he has clothed with his authority and honored with the dignity of his priesthood, whom he has charged to continue his mission, to preach his Gospel, and to dispense everywhere his graces and blessings. Sustain them in their fatigues and labors; console them in their pains; fortify them in their combats; but above all, keep far from them all the evils of sin.

Obtain for them the humility of St. John the Baptist, the faith of St. Peter, the zeal and charity of St. Paul, the purity of St. John, and the spirit of prayer and recollection of which thou, my dear saint, art the model, so that, after having been on earth, the faithful dispensers of the Mysteries of thy foster Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, they may in heaven receive the recompense promised to pastors according to the Heart of God. Amen.

Blessings to you all,
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.
