The Sisters of Reparation invite the public to join them in days of fasting and prayer for priests and seminarians during the month of August. The devotion is a long-standing practice based on a founding charism of the community.

“Our priests and seminarians are counting on these reparational offerings,” said Mother Mary of the Angels.

The days are Wednesday, Aug. 4, feast of St. John Vianney, priest; and Friday, Aug. 20, St. Bernard, abbot and doctor of the church.

“Please remember the many daily opportunities available for reparation during Ordinary Time and let us join together to offer comfort to Our Blessed Lord for our sins and those of all humankind,” Mother Mary of the Angels said. The intentions of the people of the archdiocese are being remembered at 2 p.m. Masses each Sunday at the convent.
