Ways You Can Help

We appreciate all the help we can get. Our ministry is dedicated to growing and nurturing a community of prayer and help with our mission can come in several forms. Here are just a few ways you can help.

Working together for improvement

We want to hear from any of you who are vision impaired or have a disability. Please send us an email to [email protected] and let us know about you so that we may better assist your needs. We have been in contact with some of you recently, for registration purposes, so we know how grateful you were, for only being able to get in, but we can do better by you, so please write to us.

Hymns

We are in the process of replacing some of the hymn music we are now using, also for copyright reasons. If you own license free recordings of music and want to share them with the community, we will integrate your content. Or maybe ask in your parish for such license free recordings, it will go a long way to save some of the ministry’s financial resources. You can send this content to [email protected] Or write to us at [email protected], we can start a discussion there, if you have ideas on the subject and want to help. See the “Hymns Needed” link on the right side of our website for some suggested hymns, but anything suitable for liturgical use is welcome.

Letters of support for Divine Office

We have had kind-hearted people asking how they could help and sending letters of support is one of the best ways. The effort is to prove that this work matters, and it’s important in the spiritual life of many people. It should be allowed to stay alive and nourish our prayer life. Your testimony is needed as it represents the pillar of this work.

As we have said to some of you already, the truth is easy to defend and as long as your testimony is the truth, personal and coming from the heart, we can not fail. May the Holy Spirit help take your message to these good people’s heart. We are all one body in Christ and a reverent respectful message from you will help them feel it.

If you have any questions or want help in any way, please write to [email protected]

We have gathered a list of contacts that are publicly available, from public websites and correspondence and please consider sending your correspondence to ALL of the following contacts and to ALL available addresses for them. We recommend this for the simple
reason that communications are difficult to get to the intended recipient. For example, web forms are often ignored or they are screened by technical staff. They often go unnoticed. Letters written are most meaningful, but also tend to be filtered by administrators if received in low number. Emails are often managed by an assistant as well. So, because we want the message to get through, please use all
the methods of contacts and contact everyone. God willing, they will see we are worth every effort!

Publishers:
GIA is the publisher assigned responsibility for granting permission to use the version of the psalms used in the Liturgy of the Hours. You should urge the GIA permissions office to grant Divine Office license to use the Grail Psalms. You can affirm that even while the Divine Office website is free that you and most members would willingly contribute more if needed to ensure sufficient royalties would be paid.
