The Elderly/Sick Sisters of our Province are involved in the ministry of Prayer. Each Sister is assigned to pray for one of the active ministries of our Province and for the leadership of the various sections of our Congregation. We pray for the needs of the world, the Church, the deceased, for any persons we know who need prayer, those who request prayer or intentions that are inscribed in the Prayer Journal kept in the Maryvale chapel.
