“Love, to be true, has to begin with God in prayer.
If we pray, we will be able to love, and
if we love, we will be able to serve.”
– Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
The mission of the Mother Teresa Prayer Society is to foster organized, spiritual support for Catholic Charities’ staff, volunteers and those we serve, and to pray for those who ask for our prayers.
Why Mother Teresa?
Mother Teresa of Calcutta provides a perfect example for how we must pursue our own mission here at Catholic Charities. She constantly insisted that “everything begins with prayer.” Ultimately, it was her prayer that strengthened her to love like God and to serve like Christ as she tirelessly served the poorest of the poor. She is the perfect model for us!
What do members do?
Members are asked to pray for Catholic Charities and those we serve on a daily basis. New members will receive a prayer card to guide them in their daily prayer, along with a Mother Teresa necklace medallion, which will serve as a reminder of their commitment to the society.
General intentions will be emailed to Society members once each month, and specific intentions will be emailed as necessary throughout the year. Catholic Charities will accept members’ prayer intentions and offer them during our weekly Mass in our chapel. They will remain near the tabernacle for several days after having been presented.
