Seven Sisters Apostolate

Start Seven Sisters Apostolate, a program of prayer for your priests. The premise of this apostolate, that originated in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, encourages 7 women at a parish to spiritual adopt their priest (one for each day of the week). They want fellow disciples to be a spiritual sister giving hidden support to priests.

“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

Fasting Brothers

Groups of men offer various forms of fasting to augment the prayer efforts of a Seven Sisters group. Each man (6 total for each priest of the parish) prayerfully discerns the type of fasting he will offer and commits to fast on a designated day of the week (excepting Sunday/Solemnities). A Fasting Brother offers his fast solely for the intentions of the pastor.

Jesus tells us of how to fight the most powerful devils: “But this kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting” (Matthew 17:21). The Seven Sisters provide the prayer and the Fasting Brothers complement it with their fasts. We need both!
