Prayer & Fasting for our Bishops

Hello Brothers & Sisters in Christ, 

The U.S. Catholic Bishops will be meeting at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, IL for a retreat between January 2 and 8, 2019. In cooperation with Marytown and Relevant Radio, we are calling all Catholics to storm heaven with prayer and fasting. This is the perfect opportunity to join one another in unity. Consider the power of our intercessory prayers as One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. Immediately to the East of the retreat location is Marytown, which has had a Perpetual Adoration Chapel since 1928. Those in Chicagoland plan to keep vigil before the Blessed Sacrament at Marytown while our Bishops are on retreat.

Through the intercession of the Holy Spirit may the fire of God’s love be rekindled in your heart and lead you to join us in prayer and fasting. Please help spread the word so that every Parish in the country is aware of this important effort and can participate. We need your help to distribute this flyer and organize a local effort at your Parish. We are contacting our local Bishops and requesting that the Bishops encourage the Pastors in their respective Vicariates to place the flyer in the bulletin and to make plans to participate. 

Please ask your Bishop and Pastor to join in the promotion. 

To Jesus through Mary. 

 God Bless.


The St. John Paul II Eucharistic Adoration Association of the Chicago Archdiocese.
