Prayers for Priests: June Birthdays

For five years I had the pleasure of being the Church Commission Chairman of the Archdiocesan Council of  Catholic Women (ACCW).  This devotion to priests had not been published in the Catholic Sentinel and as of 2007 these birthdays are shared with all Oregon Catholics.

I thank God that even in my short time with these wonderful women, this article has been included in  the Catholic Sentinel.

A year of prayer for our priests

“A Year of Prayer for our Priests” is a ministry of the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women. We share the joy of this devotion with all Oregon Catholics. A day each month is set aside to pray for the names of priests serving in the Archdiocese of Portland. Please remember them and all priests, deacons and religious in your daily prayers.

O, Jesus I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests, especially (name here). Keep them all close to Your heart and bless them abundantly in time and eternity. Amen
