You are invited to the Spiritual Motherhood of Priests
For our Diocesan Priests, Deacons and Seminarians
You can become a Spiritual Mother and adopt a Priest-Son!!! There are only three things required:
Eucharistic Adoration, weekly (If you already have a Holy Hour each week there is no need to do more). Just add your Priest-Son to your prayers during your Holy Hour.
Three short prayers each day for your Priest-Son, a card will be given to you.
It is recommended to receive the Sacrament of Confession frequently.
That is all there is to it!! So simple!! So easy!! No meetings and no cost!!
Your only meeting is once a week with God during Eucharistic Adoration as you pray for your Priest-Son.
A short ceremony will be available in the fall for those who choose to become Spiritual Mothers: to pray the commitment prayer before the Eucharist, receive the blessing to carry this out, and receive their Priest-Son’s name. If you are interested in becoming a Spiritual Mother or have any questions, all you need to do is call one of the numbers below for more information.
