Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 11:24


The Gift of Prayer

Our Prayer Enrollment Cards Program is a way for you to express sympathy for the loss of a loved one, honor a loved one who is living or deceased, offer prayers for someone in need of healing, let someone know you are thinking of him/her, or send birthday blessings. Each gift of prayer also offers financial support for our retired Sisters who will pray for the person or for the repose of the soul of whomever you enroll. Roses will be placed in the chapel of St. William the Abbot Convent in Seaford, New York. Your loved one will be remembered in the daily prayers of the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk, and in special Masses for the Prayer Enrollment Intentions of the Ursuline Sisters celebrated on the following days:


  • Feast of St. Angela Merici – January 27
  • Birthday of our Congregational Founder, John Lambertz – February 8
  • Easter Sunday
  • Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows – September 15
  • Feast of St. Ursula – October 21
  • All Souls Day – November 2
  • Christmas Day

Roses and a card with your prayer intention will be placed on the altar of the St. William the Abbot Convent Chapel, and the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk will remember those enrolled in daily prayer for one year.

Please call or e-mail us if you would like to participate in this program, and we will send you whichever card(s) you request (In Memory of, In Honor of, For the Healing Of, Thinking of You, Birthday Card-Mountains, Birthday Card-Flowers). To enroll a loved one, simply write their name inside the card and mail it to them directly. Please return the provided slip along with your donation (minimum donation $10) for the enrollment to:
