Prayer and Mass Requests

As Sisters of Social Service our life is a balance of prayer and work. Deeply rooted in our Benedictine Spirit we join with people throughout the world asking God to answer prayer. We are honored to include your prayer intentions or to remember or honor your loved ones during our public and private masses, and at other times of community prayer.

You can send a prayer intention to us by email, traditional mail or by calling the number below. One of our Sisters handles these confidential prayer and mass requests.

We will then include your confidential prayer request in our community’s prayers, in prayers at our Villa Senior Sisters’ Chapel, at Eucharist and in quiet times throughout the day. We can honor or remember your loved one during our public masses, in our Book of Remembrances, and in our community’s prayers, as well.

Prayer intentions – what to include:

  • - Your name (and email or phone number, if you wish)
  • - The name of person for whom the prayer is requested
  • - Is there something you would like us to mention in the prayer?
  • - May we send you a prayer card?  (yes, no)
    If yes, please include your mailing address.
  • - May we share this request to pray outside our community?  (yes, no)

Mass requests – what to include:

  • - Your name (and email or phone number, if you wish)
  • - The full name of person for whom the mass is requested
  • - Whether the mass request is to honor or remember this person
