Pray with the Mothers of Lu – February 10th at 5:30 pm at St. Pius X

Pray with the Mothers of Lu – February 10th at 5:30 pm at St. Pius X

The Mothers of Lu is the remarkable vocations story of mothers from the small Italian village of Lu who met weekly in 1881, to pray in a particular way for vocations to the priesthood and religious life to come from their own families. 323 vocations was the astonishing fruit of the Lu mothers’ prayers!

A 21st Century Mothers of Lu Prayer group is forming in our area to pray with the same specific intention of calling priests and religious from our own children. The group will make a pledge of prayer and sacrifice for this cause.

We will be having an opening Mass on February 10th at 5:30 pm at St. Pius X. To join or find out more about Mothers of Lu, please contact: andrea.vella.phillips@gmail.com.
