In 2010, our congregation’s communication directors from the four provinces collaborated to plan, develop and implement a new ministry to accept online prayer requests from anywhere in the world: Prayers Please.
At the time, they created a free prayer request app to take advantage of emerging technology to meet the need for a quick and easy way for people on the go to request prayers from the sisters. Ten years later, the need for prayer remains the same, but technology has evolved. With the ease of accessing mobile-friendly websites, we have concluded that the app is no longer necessary to continue the Prayers Please ministry. We will be retiring the app as of March 31.
Of course, the ministry continues! We always accept prayer requests through our website at: csjcarondelet.org/we-pray-for-you/.
We thank the John, Marie and Joseph Whalen Foundation, Inc. for their support of the Prayers Please app, the talented web developers who kept it functioning over the years, our communicators for keeping the ministry active, and our sisters for the prayers that are the heart of the ministry.
If you use the prayer app, you may miss being able to access the prayer request form with one tap. It’s simple to add a shortcut to the webpage on your smartphone or tablet, which will act similarly to the app. Just follow the instructions below.
