Prayer for the Servant Leader

Brothers and sisters,

Jen Drees, OFS (Regional Formation Director) has started monthly “office hours” with local fraternity formation directors.  During their Zoom meetings, they have used a prayer resource from the National Fraternity USA website under “Pray with Us/Prayers for Fraternal Life.”


As many fraternities in our region prepare for their Chapters of Election, let us consider making this a part of our personal and communal prayer patterns.  The very opening of this prayer is a testament to someone seeking out and desiring to do God’s will:

“Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like Your own.”

Let us always be open to the Holy Spirit to guide and animate us at every level of fraternity!

Peace and all good,

Teresa S. Redder, OFS

St. Katharine Drexel Regional Minister

    Yes, I’m aware of this prayer & highly recommend that it be used by all fraternities as they prepare for their Chapter of Election perhaps start at same time that the nominations chair is appointed? It might be recommended as a daily prayer for nominees who accept to become a nominee for office.

    Peace & Joy,
    Terri Leone, OFS
