That our prayers may find the heart of every priest and bishop.
Mission: The Seven Sisters Apostolate 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.
Structure: A core group of 7 women (each taking one day of the week) with one as the anchoress (coordinator) who respond to the call to pray for their parish priest. Additional women may make themselves available as substitutes. The Holy Hour can be prayed at any time during your assigned day – when possible, prayed in the presence of our Eucharistic Lord. Initial commitment is made for one year, discerning the call to continue or invite a replacement to maintain core group of seven.

“In strengthening the priest you strengthen the whole Church…Strengthen the priest and you strengthen the whole foundation, you strengthen everything in the Church.” – Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, S.P.
Prayer to St. John Vianney
I love You, O my God, and my only desire is to love You until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God, and I would rather die loving You, than live without loving You.
I love You, Lord and the only grace I ask is to love You eternally…
My God, if my tongue cannot say in every moment that I love You, I want my heart to repeat it to You as often as I draw breath.
Please help us as we go forth to bring the Seven Sisters Apostolate to the diocese. Send your Holy Spirit upon the women of Superior that we might have an apostolate for every priest in our diocese.
In Jesus’ name. Amen
