The Monthly Prayer Request for
Priests (MPRP) is an international lay apostolate founded in 1990 to encourage
people to pray and sacrifice for the good of our priests. There are
currently over 70 dioceses in the United States and overseas that
participate in this apostolate. The MPRP has been endorsed by many
Cardinals and Bishops as a simple, yet powerful way, to spiritually and
emotionally support our priests in their ministry. The MPRP has been
established in the Milwaukee Archdiocese since September 2010.
calendar has been arranged in alphabetical order using the current Milwaukee
Archdiocesan Directory. Specific days have been included for the Pope,
the Archbishop and the active religious orders in the Archdiocese. Please
keep each priest in your prayers on the suggested date. In this way, every
diocesan priest in the Archdiocese will be held in prayer by many people.
There are multiple possibilities for prayer such as offering daily Mass,
lighting a candle, fasting and penance, daily offerings of joys and sorrows,
praying the rosary or divine mercy chaplet, or just a simple Lord's Prayer
humbly prayed by a family; any or all of these could be offered for the priest
of the day.
