Dear Friends in the Lord,
Recently, I was reading about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and her founding of the Missionaries of Charity, the religious congregation which she established to care for the poorest of the poor in Calcutta, India. Blessed Teresa spoke of how it was important to have people praying for the success of the work of her sisters. One of her desires in establishing the sisters was to bring the love of Jesus to those who were most destitute and to impress upon their hearts how much Jesus loved them.
Among the different goals we have at St. Patrick Academy is to instill in the young people an understanding of how much they are loved by God. God does love them and has tremendous plans for their lives. This is Good News.
Please help us by volunteering to be an intercessor for the Academy. Your spiritual support is necessary. Another way to support the work of the Academy is by offering up your sufferings for the Academy. For example, if you are ill and home-bound, please consider offering up some of your daily suffering for the well being of our students, faculty, and staff. Your intention may be, “Lord, accept my suffering today for the students, faculty, and staff of St. Patrick Academy. May the good work you have begun there be brought to completion.”
If you are interested in being an intercessor and receiving periodic e-mails for specific prayer requests or for updates about the spiritual progress of the Academy, please sign-up by filling in the form provided below. Once this is done, you will receive an e-mail confirming your membership to our network of intercessors.
Prayer can move mountains! Please keep us in your prayers.
Sincerely yours in the Lord,
Fr. James Ruggieri
