One of Ireland's longest established teaching orders has launched a prayer request page on its website.

Those who log a request get a response from a nun in the order, who then prays on their behalf.

Sister Moya Hegarty from the Ursuline order says the service is designed to give people someone to turn to.

"It’s an opportunity to connect with somebody whose role is to notice what the prayer is and to pray specifically for that person," Sister Hegarty said.

The nuns acknowledge the prayer request and it is then "brought in prayer before God", said Sister Hegarty.


See, this is what we need. The church changing with the times. Now how about some female clergy?
