RB Prologue:19 & 20
College Prayer Partners Gathering | In your wildest imaginings, could you ever see a bunch of college students giving up a free evening to join a group of nuns in prayer?
On the evening of Monday, March 20th, that’s exactly what happened at Sacred Heart Monastery. Following prayer, the students and Sisters moved from the chapel to the chapter room for root beer floats. It has been a long standing tradition at the monastery to have the Sisters be prayer partners with students at Mount Marty College, (the school the Sisters sponsor). The students are free to sign up for the program if they wish. They are matched with a sister who will be praying for them during the school year.The first meeting of the prayer partners is at Vespers (evening prayer) towards the beginning of the school year.
How the prayer partners interact after that is up to them!
Some Sisters occasionally invite the students for supper. Some Sisters will send notes to their prayer partner on special occasions. Others email back and forth. Some of these relationships have lasted well past the student’s graduation. Some have even developed into religious vocations. The students feel comfortable enough that they seek input from the Sisters when they are discerning where God is calling them. So imagine wildly, all things are possible with God.
