Mothers of Seminarians Prayer Watch

En Español

Mary, Mother of all Seminarians,
Pray for them.

Evelyn Hart and Angie Elser, mothers of seminarians, formed the Mothers of Major and Minor Seminarians Prayer Watch (MOMMS) Prayer Watch in 2009 to encourage all mothers and any interested Catholics to pray for the seminarians in the Diocese of Little Rock and their intentions every day.

In the beginning, MOMMS was for mothers of diocesan seminarians. Each one was asked to sign up for a specific day of the week. On that specific day, any type of prayer could be prayed, such as the Hail Mary, a rosary, a Mass, time spent in adoration.

“Because of my son’s trust and faith in God, I want to guarantee my son that every day of his life he will be covered in prayer, as he begins his journey toward the altar.” — Angie Elser, mother of Stephen Elser, Christ the King Church, Little Rock

This insures that every day of the week seminarians would be specifically prayed for by their mothers.

It also allows the mothers of these men to share a certain bond in praying for their son’s vocation.

Join Us in Prayer

Now, anyone interested in joining the MOMMS Prayer Watch is asked to pick a day every week to pray for the seminarians. It is not necessary to contact one of the coordinators to let them know you have joined the prayer watch. For a general intention, pray for the seminarians' intentions and "whatever the young men need that day.”
