Prayer Library

Prayer, in the traditional Catholic definition, is a lifting of the mind and heart to God. With the hectic pace of life for many people today, prayer — however defined by any tradition of faith — has taken on more importance. If you have prayers, readings, poetry or other materials for spiritual reflection that you wish to share with your colleagues in ministry across the country, please send them to Lynette Ballard, senior director, learning integration, or fax the materials to Mission Services at (314) 253-3420.

A Prayer for the Nigerian Schoolgirls

The abduction of over 230 Nigerian schoolgirls calls us to prayer and action on their behalf. The U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking has provided a prayer and other information to help support the children's safe return.
