Please break out  “The Role of Intercessors in Teams”


Father Caffarel prompted the concept of the Intercessors in 1960 when he said

“The spiritual nourishment of the Teams worries me. I believe that right now it needs an extra injection of prayer. This is be-cause, strength, life, ability to expand are fed by prayer, as much in the Movement as with individuals. So I make this urgent call to the volunteers… I am convinced that the movement needs it and that it will obtain great benefit from it.”

Intercessor are Teams couples who promise to pray for an hour once a month for the intentions of the movement, and for Teams couples everywhere. Currently there are 3,500 people, including couples, men, women, young people, families, priests and religious, who are part of the Intercessors throughout the world.

Intercessors receive a quarterly newsletter with topics for meditation and prayers and specific prayer requests. Team’s couples can submit prayer requests, to be passed on to the Intercessors.
