Prayer and encouragement

In response to COVID-19, the Sisters of the Holy Cross Liturgy Office has expanded its ministry, incorporating technology to reach out to the community in a new way. On March 24, the Liturgy Office began sharing devotionals to provide prayer and encouragement to the sisters and the wider Loretto worshipping community while we practice social distancing.

The video devotions were adapted by the Liturgy Office from a collection of prayers written by the Rev. Jill Lowry, a hospital chaplain in Indianapolis, Indiana. All devotions will remain on the Church of Our Lady of Loretto Facebook page.

May this video devotional serve as a source of reassuring prayer and hope in these trying times of fear and uncertainty.

May Christ’s peace be upon you,
The Liturgy Office staff
