Prayer Requests

We invite you to share your prayer requests and ensure you that the sisters will be remembering you in prayer.


Dear Sisters, Happy Easter, Sisters. Christ is risen Allelluia Alleluia. How are you doing sisters? I am currently a Deacon and a member of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD). I would like to invite all of you to pray for my priesthood ordination which will be held on May 22, 2021, coinciding with the Santa Rita feast of Cascia. And the day after, I will celebrate my first Mass on Pentecost, 23 May 2021. I really ask for prayers from all the sisters in your community, that I will remain faithful forever in my priesthood. After my priesthood ordination, I have been assigned to work in California. Thank you so much, Sisters, for your prayers.

Many blessings.
