Bishop Matano’s Letter: Year of the Eucharist

Supporting Our Priests With Prayer Did you know that there is a group in our diocese that organizes a monthly calendar that invites us to pray for one priest or seminarian in our diocese each day?

Project Rachael– If you have had an abortion or been affected by an abortion, call 1-888-972-2435 for free and confidential compassionate care.

Elizabeth Ministry for Miscarriage and Infant Loss– We offer emotional, spiritual, and practical support to women and families; distribute prayer shawls, comfort kits, provide resources, and can help make logistical arrangements. Elizabeth Ministry also organizes two annual Masses of Remembrance for the loss of children each year. If you (or a loved one) are seeking support or are interested in getting on our group mailing list, please contact us! Molly Hickey (ElizabethMinistryROC@gmail.com) or Janene Loughran 585-329-1974
