Pray for the priests of our world and of the Diocese of Rapid City on the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. This World Day of Prayer was established by Pope John Paul II in 2002 and occurs annually on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
On this day, the Church encourages priests to reflect upon the gift of priesthood they have received from Christ. The faithful are encouraged to pray for their priests that they may be strengthened in their ministry and remain steadfast in their commitment to the Lord.
