The Face of Prayer

On Divine Mercy Sunday 2017, the Diocese announced The Face of Prayer, an online prayer experience that brings together social media, text alerts, and the power of prayer.

Each day around 4 pm, a text message is sent to all participants, inviting them to stop whatever they are doing and to pray for a specific intention, followed by the reci- tation of one Hail Mary. This simple gesture unites thousands of people in prayer, while reminding us of the place that prayer should play in our ordinary lives. To date, over eight million prayer texts that have been shared by subscribers. To join the movement is easy. Simply text the word pray from your smartphone to 55778. You will automatically receive a response to confirm your subscription. Standard texting rates apply.
