  3. You can leave submit your intention on our web page at
  4. You can write your intention on the clipboard in the lobby of the shrine.

The friars will prayer for your intentions regardless of how you send them to us.

Please be confident that the good Lord, who knows the contents of our hearts, has already heard your prayers.

Please note that 617-553-4100 is the new number of our prayer request line and will now accept both voice messages and text messages.

The Lord bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.
The Lord bless you!
