Pray for an end to the killing of innocent babies in the womb



Abortion cries out to God our Father for judgment against an adulterous and perverted generation deaf to their silent screams.

The Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, cannot abide in any soul that accepts, condones, or assents to this heinous crime.


There is no greater moral imperative in our time











Orders and Foundations


Aid to the Church in Need

"The Work Aid to the Church in Need founded by Father Werenfried van Straaten, o.praem., is a Universal Public Association established by the Holy See. . . . These Mass stipends entrusted to us represent a vital support for the survival of needy priests in faraway countries where the Church is truly in danger. Where necessary, we top up the Mass stipends from other sources so that no needy priest has to serve at the altar without being able to live from the altar."

lifeissues.net

  "There are crucial issues that face us today: abortion, aids, bioethics, birth control, when life begins, population concerns, post-abortion healing, etc. But far too often our public debates are long on emotion and short on clear thinking. Along the way, respect for the dignity of human life gets lost in the rhetoric. Our purpose is to promote a 'Culture of Life' in which human freedom will find its authentic meaning by joining forces with truth, life and love. This culture 'needs new lifestyles which will show respect for the dignity of every individual, especially the weakest, and which will recognize the value of human sexuality in the development of the person.' (Evangelium Vitae)"

Individual Missionary Priests


These priests serve in places where the population is primarily non-Catholic and/or non-Christian. Usually they do not receive stipend Masses since their parishes are very small and quite in need. Most parish priests can offer about 360 stipend Masses yearly.

Please contact these priests directly. In most cases, you may send a Bank Money order, or you may use Western Union for immediate stipend transfers.

We have verified that each priest listed is indeed attached to a diocese. We have contacted and verified this with his Bishop. Please consider helping these priests - their need is great.
