Cathedral parish prays for consecrated communities

022015concecratedlifeJACKSON – The Mary and Martha Circle of St. Peter Cathedral parish has developed a prayer book for parishioners to share in celebrating the Year for Consecrated Life. Individuals or families have signed up at each of the cathedral parish’s Masses to take home a copy of the book and pray for religious communities serving in the diocese.
The book contains an intention for each day of the week followed by an interesting fact about the consecrated life and prayers. Each section concludes with the Our Father, three Hail Marys and the Glory Be.
At the end of each Mass the book is passed from the current holder to the next person or family who has taken on the responsibility of praying that week. A prayer of blessing is prayed over them before the final blessing of the Mass.
Mississippi Catholic would like to hear about what different parishes are doing to celebrate the year so we may share those ideas with others and lift up all those who have been called to serve the church in the consecrated life. Email or call 601-969-3581.
