Since October, 2018, St Edmond has been blessed to be a part of the Seven Sisters Apostolate Mission.
The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call to strengthen the Church by insuring 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.
For whom do we pray: In our parish, we pray for our pastor and assisting priests.
How often do we pray: Each member commits to a Holy Hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week. The Commitment is to that day; the Seven Sister may pray at any time on that day. If she is unable to offer her Holy Hour, she secures a substitute.
Where: Ideally in front of the Blessed Sacrament, either in a Church or Adoration Chapel.
- this is a 'hidden ministry'
- each woman prays on her own, not as a group
- there are no meetings to attend
- an information/prayer/suggestion book is provided
- we invite women to be a part of this ministry
Presently, there are Seven Sisters Apostolates at more than 250 locations around the world. Women of St. Edmond parish are in the process of growing this Apostolate here for our priests.
