Spiritual Motherhood of Priests
Our parish is joining all the parishes across the Archdiocese in launching a new prayer apostolate that encourages women to consider becoming a spiritual mother to one priest or seminarian of our Archdiocese. Prayer for priests and seminarians has been proven to be effective throughout the history of the Church and we would like all the women of the parish to consider signing their name to the poster located in the vestibule and taking a packet of materials to begin praying for your new spiritual son. For more information about this apostolate please visit cincinnativocations.org/spiritual-motherhood-of-priests.
