Seven Sisters Apostolate
Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop. We are looking for ladies to commit to prayer one hour each week, thus covering a complete week, preferably in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Please prayerfully consider joining this worthy cause. https://sevensistersapostolate.org
