The Surrender Initiative
The Surrender Initiative is a call to prayer, particularly for loved ones who have drifted away from the Church. Many of us have experienced the heartache of watching someone we deeply care about drift away from the Church. The Surrender Initiative presents an opportunity to come together as the Body of Christ—to gather in the sacredness of the Holy Mass, praying intentionally and dedicating our Mass prayers and sacrifices for those we love who are no longer practicing their faith. Come pray with us.

The Spirituality of The Surrender Initiative
The Perfect Prayer
The Mass is the perfect prayer because Christ Himself intercedes for us by making His sacrifice on the Cross truly present again. During the consecration, the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus. By uniting ourselves to Christ's offering, we join in His perfect worship of the Father in Heaven.
Let Us Pray.
The heavens open and multitudes of angels come to assist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
-St. Gregory the Great

Let us Pray
The Surrender Initiative invites Catholics to embrace the sacramental life and unite their prayers with those of Christ and the Church — for loved ones who have stopped practicing their Catholic faith. The evenings are an opportunity to pray — with intention — as a community for those whom we love. The evening event includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation (before Mass), the Litany to Obtain a Conversion, sacred music, Holy Mass, and a wine and cheese reception.
