St. Teresa Prayer Society
Our Monthly Intentions

“Prayer will give us a clean heart,
and a clean heart will allow us
to see God in each other.”
– St. Teresa of Calcutta

Why Saint Teresa of Calcutta?

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, now St. 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 St. 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.


Immigration Legal Services

Catholics celebrate National Migration Week in January. Just as on the road to Emmaus, Christ’s disciples met him in the guise of a stranger, this month’s intention reminds us that Christ makes himself present to each of us in the lonesome traveler, the newcomer, and the migrant.



Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2. Just as Mary and Joseph presented the baby Jesus to God in the temple, so, too, do we submit ourselves to the love, mercy and guidance of our Father in Heaven, as we seek to care for the children He has put in our care.



and Kinship

Catholics celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph on March 19. Saint Joseph was a compassionate, caring man who loved and protected Jesus, his foster son. We ask for St. Joseph’s intercession on behalf of our work to keep children in a loving and caring home.


Catholic Charities:

The Entire Agency

As we commemorate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for the continued renewal of faith and missionary zeal throughout our agency and all of its ministries.


The Mission

in Ft. Collins)

As we commemorate the Feast of Pentecost, when Jesus sent his disciples out into the world filled with his Holy Spirit, we pray for a similar spirit of strength, courage and compassion amidst those seeking shelter at The Mission.


Samaritan House


Catholics celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph on March 19. Saint Joseph was a compassionate, caring man who loved and protected Jesus, his foster son. We ask for St. Joseph’s intercession on behalf of our work to keep children in a loving and caring home.




Catholics celebrate the Feast of St. Joachim and St. Anne, the grandparents of Jesus, on July 26. We ask for Joachim and Anne’s intercession for the elderly clients in our care, that they, too, may experience comfort in the face of loneliness, hope in the face of death, and faith in the love that Christ has for them.


Regina Caeli

Clinical Services

Catholics celebrate the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 22. This feast celebrates the namesake of our new, clinical counseling center, where clients may receive a variety of counseling services, all firmly grounded in the wisdom of the Catholic faith.


Emergency Assistance


In addition to observing the Labor Day holiday, Catholics celebrate the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul on September 27. Those clients seeking our emergency services are often struggling to find work. In addition to the assistance we give them with food, rent and utility bills, they need our prayers.




For Catholics, the month of October is considered “Respect Life Month.” Our new Marisol Health Center is a licensed medical center fully equipped to help women make life-giving decisions for their future and for their unborn babies. We beg Mary’s intercession for this important ministry.




In addition to our American observance of Veterans Day, Catholics also celebrate the Feast of St. Martin of Tours on November 11. He is the patron saint of soldiers. We pray in a special way for all of the veterans in our care, and in thanksgiving for the way in which they have served our country.


Guadalupe Shelter


Catholics celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12, followed by the celebration of Christmas on December 25. Please pray in special way that they might experience hope and true joy in the face of Christ’s birth, and that we might have the courage to be Christ’s presence in their lives.
