On Friday, June 8th the 9th annual worldwide prayer relay dedicated to the sanctification of priests will take place. Organizers of the event are using the power of social media to maximize participation including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as local and global live television broadcasts by EWTN (The Eternal Word Television Network) and other networks.
“This year we believe we will exceed the incredible 10,000,000 participants who joined us in 2017 as we bring huge numbers of people from all cultural backgrounds together again to offer their prayers worldwide from a number of new prayer locations in various corner of the world,” said Marion Mulhall, Founder and CEO.
Worldpriest is a lay organization of professional communications people formed in 2003 to ‘Affirm the dignity, beauty, and gift of the Priesthood of Jesus Christ to Humanity’. Marion Mulhall is the inspiration behind worldpriestday.com which she formed in response to Blessed John Paul’s announcement of a World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests to be held annually on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
