The Memorare Army
To help us reach our goal of $6 million for the Unify, Beautify, Glorify campaign we are
asking parishioners to join the Memorare Army.
The Memorare Army is inspired by St. Theresa of Calcutta, to pray for donations and the success of our capital campaign to remodel our church and build a new rectory for our parish community.
When Saint Teresa of Calcutta was told that she had to move to another location, which would cost $85,000, she turned to prayer for help in purchasing the new location. At the end of the year, she and her sisters had prayed 85,000 Memorares, and she received the donated amount of $85,000. She called it the “Memorare Army of Prayer.”
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come;
before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.
