November 3 was the first day of 100 Days of Prayer, and you are invited to join with thousands of people across the U.S. Catholic health ministry and beyond who are coming together in prayer for those who are sick or injured and their caregivers.
100 Days of Prayer culminates at 1 p.m. on Feb. 11, 2015, World Day of the Sick, when the people who have joined this prayer campaign will stop for one powerful minute of collective prayer for healing. World Day of the Sick is an annual observance, initiated by Pope John Paul II, coinciding with the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Please go to: www.chausa.org/100 now to sign up to join this prayer event. You can also submit the names (first names only) of those persons who are sick or injured and their caregivers in need of prayer. Each Monday, leading up to Feb. 11, you will receive an e-mail with a unique prayer for your reflection during the week.
2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Catholic Health Association. 100 Days of Prayer is the inaugural event of the association's Centennial observance. Be a part of this ministry-wide prayer campaign; sign up now at the link above.
