The Seven Sisters Apostolate – The Seven Sisters Apostolate group began last year when seven women responded to a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that one hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest. Each member commits to an hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week. You may pray at any time on that day in church or at home. This commitment is asked for a period of one year beginning the week of June 21, but can remain open-ended in time as each individual discerns her call. Please call Debbie Lokar at the parish office if interested or for further information.
