Pray With Us
Here you will find the prayers being prayed during Memorial Services for our Sisters who have died. Because of social distancing, these memorials cannot currently be held with large numbers of Sisters attending, but many Sisters would still like to pray the service for each Sister lost. This archive starts in May 2020.
This Advent Season, revisit the Integral Vision video - Deep Incarnation - The Evolutionary Journey of Advent.
The Generalate Community prays daily during Advent for a particular province, group, or global concern. Each member of the Generalate Community composes a prayer for an intention and prays it on the specified day during the Eucharistic celebration.
To help celebrate Foundation Day tomorrow, Ministry Services, in collaboration with Sister Harriet Schnurr, SSND, prepared this year’s prayer. May our prayer in communion with the entire congregation increase the Circulation of Love.
"I am well aware that this Message comes to you at a difficult time: the pandemic swept down on us like an unexpected and furious storm; it has been a time of trial for everyone, but especially for us elderly persons. Many of us fell ill, others died or experienced the death of spouses or loved ones, while others found themselves isolated and alone for long periods". ~Pope Frances
World Day of Prayer for Vocations will be observed this Sunday, May 8, 2022. It is also known as "Good Shepherd Sunday." The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2).
This week, Christians all over the world celebrate the Triduum, recalling the suffering, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Throughout the season of Lent we were horrified by the shocking death and destruction of the war in Ukraine.
On March 25, the Sisters at The Watermark gathered for a Solidarity Day in honor of Ukraine. They prayed for the war-torn country during their weekly Communion Service and took up a collection for the province fund that is helping our Sisters in Europe feed, shelter, care for and teach incoming refugees.
We have journeyed together this Lent, stopping along the way to reflect on our commitment to those who seek justice as immigrants. As we go forward into Holy Week, we recall the pilgrimage that Jesus made and his victory of life over death in the resurrection. We invite you to reflect on these images, poems, short videos, and prayers as you make space for contemplation during this Holy Week.
We hold before you all who live close to war and conflict; and all who live close to the threat of war and violence.
This Sunday (2/20) is the World Day of Social Justice. Social justice is an integral part of Church teaching and the foundation of what SSND refers to as Shalom and our efforts to “work actively toward enhancing just structures that foster fullness of life and toward changing unjust structures that inhibit it.”
