Seven Sisters Apostolate
Give the gift of intercessory prayer to your priest and parish. Seven women spiritually united in prayer, each offering one hour of prayer, one day each week, solely for the intentions of the Pastor. The hour within the given day can be flexible, and the manner of prayer is the gift of the Seven Sister. The seven are formed so that each day of the week the Priest has the gift of intercessory prayer. The bond of prayer strengthens the Priest, the seven, the Church the community, and brings sustaining grace. Additional groups of Seven can be formed as the Apostolate continues to grow.

  • Any woman of the Parish is welcome to participate.
  • Please contact: Laurie Dwyer; at, and put STFX Seven Sisters in the subject line.

Confraternity of the Rosary
Organization is one of service, dedication, fellowship and caring. These ministers clean and press the altar linens used each week in our liturgies. They also prepare the worship spaces for the celebration of the sacraments each month by polishing, light cleaning, and watering plants. In addition, the ministers make rosary beads and serve with a devotion to Mary. They meet the first Monday of the month in the church hall where they share a lunch, fellowship, and prayer.
