Circles of Prayer

Generations of Ursulines and friends of Our Lady of Prompt Succor have learned about many of the favors granted through the intercession of Our Lady in response to pleas for quick and favorable help. We will never know them all. But those we know are a source of encouragement and hope to all who count on Our Lady’s help.

The Ursuline Sisters, in a tradition that has continued for over two centuries, gather the written petitions of the faithful in the Sanctuary of the Shrine. The Sisters and the faithful pray daily for these intentions during the celebration of the Eucharist.

We would like to invite you to become part of this tradition by joining the Circles of Prayer that have multiplied throughout the country. Your request for prayers for your special intentions will be physically placed in our Sanctuary and will be remembered each day at daily Mass. Your requests will also be circulated to the Circles that are active nationwide.
