MARIA STEIN – The Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics will host a special night of prayer for priests on Feb. 17, celebrated by Bishop Joseph Binzer.
The evening will begin at 7 p.m. in the Adoration Chapel with sung evening prayer and exposition of Blessed Sacrament. Vigil will be kept in the chapel for the success of the meetings Pope Francis will have in Rome later that week with the heads of the various National Councils of Bishops.
“This prayer service was developed as a way to support the good priests working in our lives and in our parish communities. It will be a time where the faithful can come together and pray for their strength as well as find healing and hope,” said Matt Hess, director of ministry and hospitality for the Shrine.
The event is free and open to the public. Members of the clergy are encouraged to come and pray with the community.
