Seven Sisters Apostolate Seven Sisters Apostolate
Praying for our Priests

“In strengthening the priest you strengthen the whole Church….”

-Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, s.P., Founder

Handmaids of the Precious Blood


Pope Francis has consecrated 2024 as the Year of Prayer, and it’s a perfect time to invite all women to consider joining in the mission of the Seven Sisters Apostolate, which is “a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop—a “holy wasting” (cf. Mt. 26:10) or lavishing of prayer for his deeper conformity to Christ.” As a spiritual sister, we emulate Mary's fidelity in "hidden" support of her Divine Son as the first and most perfect disciple. An apostolate consists of seven women who each commit to a different day of the week to offer one Holy Hour on that day for a particular priest. We give this gift for a year's time. We currently have two groups of women, one praying for Fr. Andy and the other praying for Fr. Kevin, and we have also prayed for Fr. Joe over the past year and a half until his transfer. We are now seeking women to form additional groups to pray a weekly Holy Hour for Fr. Greg and Fr. Arnold. We need fourteen women (seven women for each priest) in order to cover each day of the week - "One Holy Hour/One Priest/Each Week/One Heart of Prayer." Visit the apostolate website to learn more: sevensistersapostolate.org If you are interested in joining us in praying for our priests or have questions, please contact Kathy Helal (Turn on JavaScript!) or Bernadette Boguski (Turn on JavaScript!). We will also have an information table set up outside the Holy Family Center the weekend of April 20th and 21st to answer any questions you may have about this important ministry.
