All women of St. Cecilia parish are invited to discern participating in the Seven Sisters Apostolate.  The central focus of the apostolate is on the Eucharist.  Each member of the Seven Sisters group commits to pray on a different day of the week for their priest’s intentions (only) and also that he have a deepening devotion to the Blessed Mother. The Hour is prayed in the Presence of the Blessed Sacrament – either in front of a Tabernacle or during Eucharistic Adoration (in any Catholic church).  Each sister chooses a day of the week and the time of day she will pray.

The commitment is for one year. Each May is discernment month and sisters recommit in the month of June (month of the Sacred Heart, dear to all priests).  Seven sisters are needed to pray for Fr. Secora.  Substitutes are also needed to cover when a sister cannot fulfill her prayer hour for any reason, but can include illness, travel, etc.  If you feel called to participate, either as a regular or substitute, or if you have questions, please contact Cyndi Volcko or at 515-451-4749.
