Although not a requirement, we invite all women to participate in one of our weekly Holy Hours for the Sanctification of Priests and an hour of formation in spiritual motherhood. (Download our weekly prayers.) If you cannot attend, please unite with us in spirit where ever you are. If you are inspired to start a weekly prayer group at your parish, we are happy to assist you. If you live outside of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, please consider starting your own holy hour and spiritual adoption program for priests in your area. Again, we offer our help.

Are YOU called to Spiritual Motherhood for Priests?
You feel a persistent desire to pray for the strengthening and consolation of priests, in union with Mary.
You have quietly dedicated yourself to offering your daily sacrifices, works and suffering to sanctify priests.
Your heart is pierced whenever a priest or the priesthood is denigrated.
Your spirit rejoices in gratitude for good, holy priests who courageously lead their flocks to Christ.
Pray daily for priests – especially in Eucharistic Adoration, at Mass and while reading Scripture. Some options for specific prayers include the Morning Offering for Priests, Rosary, and Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Offer sacrifices, penances, daily duties and works of mercy in union with Jesus, as reparation for priests.
Live a sacramental life, i.e. Masses offered up for holy vocations, and frequent Confession.
Spiritually and anonymously adopt a priest, one assigned by us or of your own choosing.
Contact us, and visit our prayer group on Fridays. Or start a prayer group in your area.
Sign up for our Emails to receive weekly priest lists, prayers and notices of upcoming events.
Encourage other women to pray for priests as spiritual mothers and consider adopting a priest..
