Prayer Wall

Our St. Francis College community has always gathered as people of faith in times of joy and sorrow. St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi recognized that pain is a very real part of our lives and our community is an essential source of comfort and strength, offering us sustenance and support during challenging days, and reminding us of the transformative power of faith in the Divine.

This space has been designated as a place to remember those we love who have passed away. It also serves as an area where we will be able to continue to pray for the sick, and offer our prayers of thanksgiving and gratitude for those who have recovered.

Please email us at [email protected] or click the button below to submit your prayer intention, and the St. Francis College community along with the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn will keep them in our daily prayers.

Saints of God, come to their aid!
Hasten to meet them, angels of the Lord!
Receive their souls and present them to God the Most High.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.

Almighty God, as we ask your help and care for our sisters and brothers,
help us to be healing people in our time and place.
May your love touch others through us,
and may we help all people to live in peace.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
