Prayer Services can be used for your personal prayer and for group prayer. Each one is comprised of several elements: opening and closing prayers, readings, silence, petitions, suggested music, reflection questions and sharing. Associates, Lay Consecrated women and Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary developed these services based on topics that are important to us as committed women of prayer. These topics have surfaced from congregational or provincial meetings, public stands on current justice issues or human rights, our founding women and core values we hold as a congregation. We invite you to use these prayer services and hope you feel free to adapt them to suit your purpose.
