The Face of Prayer

 Face of Prayer

On Divine Mercy Sunday, Bishop Caggiano announced an exciting new movement – The Face of Prayer – an online crusade that brings together social media, text alerts, and the power of prayer.

Are you willing to pray with the Bishop Caggiano every day? Text a selfie, your prayer intention, or the word “pray” to 55778 and join in the journey as we learn more about the power of prayer. Participants will receive a daily prayer intention from the bishop that ends with a call to prayer. The goal of the campaign is to have thousands of people – especially our young church – praying each day alongside the bishop as we grow together in holiness. Be the face of prayer and join today.
