Abba-Ave Prayer Ministry

Founded in November of 2008. When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he responded with the words “Abba” to begin the special prayer we use most often. The Abba-Ave Prayer Ministry is an outreach which stemmed from our devotion to the Blessed Mother therefore it is only fitting to use the Latin word for the beginning of the “Hail Mary”. The Abba-Ave is an outreach to anyone in spiritual crisis because of life circumstances or just the desire for support in time of need. Each evening at 9PM our dedicated men and women pray, from the comfort of their homes, the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Glory be to the Father. In addition, on the first Tuesday of every month all are welcome to gather in Trinity Chapel at 7PM to pray the rosary. Intention requests are received and held in prayer for 30 days through our phone line at 353-3059. We invite you to pray along with us each evening at 9PM, prayers do matter.
