Catholics around the world, through The Apostleship of Prayer, UNITE their prayers with the intentions of the Holy Father!

The Apostleship of Prayer

The Apostleship of Prayer

During the month of June, the month that brings special devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we begin a prayer program here at St. Bride.
 Catholics around the world, through The Apostleship of Prayer, UNITE their daily prayers with the intentions of the Holy Father, Pope Francis. Daily prayer intentions can unite each of us to the intentions offered by the Holy Father.

 The Apostleship of prayer was started in France by the Jesuit order. At the time, younger members wanted a monthly prayer focus that united their prayers for those Christians who had become Missionaries. Started in 1844, the idea has been practiced by many Saints throughout the years.  St. Therese of Liseux, Pope St. John Paul II and Blessed Mother Teresa, for example. With continued growth, our present Pope says that the monthly prayer unites us with fellow faith members and especially those in need, across the world.
 Each month, a prayer intention card will be on the back tables containing a prayer and reflection.  Please feel welcome to participate and unite your personal daily offering with Pope Francis and fellow Catholics around the world.
