Prayer Power Society

Prayer Power has over 7,000 members throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia committed to praying before the Blessed Sacrament for vocations and families. Before the passing of founder Peggie O'Neill, CLI's President Matthew Manion agreed to ensure that the Prayer Power Society would live on. It is in that spirit that the Catholic Leadership Institute chose to combine its multitude of clergy alumni with this prayer movement.

At Catholic Leadership Institute more than 2,500 priests have participated in our leadership and consulting programs. When thanking us for the training provided to them, these men have consistently asked for our continued prayers. We pray for them at the Catholic Leadership Institute main office every day at 2:45pm. By signing up for the Prayer Power Society, you too have generously agreed to answer their call for support through prayer. Each participant in this program will be assigned one priest to lift up in intercessory prayer.

Through the Prayer Power program, we hope to provide support for all the priests who have answered God's call to serve, building each of them up one-by-one. You will receive quarterly emails from us with some fun suggestions on ways to pray for your Prayer Power priest.

History of Prayer Power

Prayer Power was founded as an intercessory Eucharistic Prayer movement in 1983 by Peggie O'Neill to encourage people to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for: An increase in vocation to the priesthood and religious life; Christ centered families; and holy priests and religious on fire with love for the Eucharist.
