Membership in the Foundation of Prayer for Priests
PRAYER . SACRIFICE . SERVICE . STUDY
Why become a member of the Foundation of Prayer for priests? Your yes will make you a part of a growing spiritual army that is praying for a new priestly Pentecost, which in turn could play an important role in advancing the New Evangelization. Praying for priests is both adivine mandate and a privilege. Prayer changes things for the good. The prayer of one person is powerful, but the prayers of many can and will change the face of the earth. May Mary and the Holy Spirit inspire your yes to join this crusade of prayer!
