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.

March: Sacrifice and Prayer

During the season of Lent, people often commit themselves to sacrifice and prayer.  They might give up eating at a restaurant and donate the cost of that meal to charity. They might pray the Rosary or daily spend time meditating on scripture.

St. Teresa of Calcutta believed that, “Sacrifice and prayer complement each other. There is no prayer without sacrifice, and there is no sacrifice without prayer. Jesus’ life was spent in intimate union with His Father as He passed through this world. We need to do the same.”

Through sacrifice and prayer, the members of St. Teresa of Calcutta Prayer Society provide spiritual support for Catholic Charities’ staff, volunteers, and the people we serve and remember those who ask for our prayers.  During March, Catholic Charities staff acknowledges and thanks you for the love and support you give through your sacrifice and prayers. Your prayers complement our ministry.

Blessed St. Teresa of Calcutta,

You know the unlimited possibilities that come from sacrifice and prayer. We ask that you continue to inspire us through our prayer and sacrifice to reach out, welcome, and serve all people who are in need. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
