Submit A Priest For Adoption

Do You Know A Priest You Would Like To Be Adopted In Prayer?

Priest Collar squareThe Handmaids of the Precious Blood pray for every priest but through our external prayer apostolates we invite Catholics everywhere to adopt individual priests for the focus of daily prayer. Well over 30,000 adoptions have taken place since we began. Typically we use the United States Catholic Directory, which lists all diocesan and religious order priests serving in the United States as a basis for adoption assignments and we have a long list of priests pending adoption. But we always welcome the submission of names of priests from anywhere in the world for our prayer list.

Feel free to send us a priest’s name, diocese, or religious community, and ordination year if known using the form below. No other details are needed.

Only their first name will be given to a prayer warrior (Lay Associates of the Priesthood; Confraternity of Mary, Mother of Priests) who will pray for that priest, along with us. God bless you.


Did you know?

On average we receive about twice as many priests names submitted for adoption than we receive volunteers to spiritually adopt them in prayer. If God is moving your heart to have a priest prayed for, please consider also signing up to Adopt A Priest yourself. We pray for all priests, including those submitted for adoption, but want to encourage more generous souls to sign up. God bless you!
