BECOME A SAINT KATERI PRAYER VOLUNTEER
Become a Saint Kateri prayer volunteer. We are all busy. There are many times during our busyness when there are pauses, such as driving, waiting in line, waiting for someone to join us. During these pauses we can pray Hail Mary's to our Blessed Mother through the intercession of St. Kateri and join her in prayer for a special intention for healing, peace, relationship building, personal intentions, etc. Let me start, "Saint Kateri, I want to quit smoking, make me brave enough to achieve this goal." "Hail Mary, ..." ~Fr. Tim
