Ministry > Servant of God, Francis J. Parater

your servant Frank Parater sought perfection as a student, scout and seminarian. He offered himself to you completely through the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Through his intercession, may young people answer your call to follow Jesus as priests, deacons and religious.

Grant, as well, the favors I seek, so that your Church will recognize his holiness and proclaim him Blessed.

Grant this through Christ our Lord.
