St Clare Intercessory Prayer Ministry (SCIPM) was officially launched on 11 Aug 2013, on the eve of the Feast of St Clare.

The inception of this ministry was at Parish Mission 2013, when Guest Speaker, Ms Sherry Weddel spoke about the importance of forming intercessory prayer ministry as the bedrock of all missionary works. This was later affirmed by the newly installed Archbishop William Goh, who spoke about his deep belief in the power of intercession, and his desire for every parish in Singapore to have an intercessory prayer ministry.

St Clare Intercessory Prayer group is no longer operating as a group in St Mary’s but under San Damiano Spirituality Center.


Every Tuesday morning    10am – 11.30amSan Damiano Chapel
Every 2nd Thursday evening7.45pm – 9.15pmSan Damiano Chapel
Except on PH & Feast Days


St Clare currently has more than 100 members who undergo spiritual formation once a month.

All members commissioned into the ministry is required to take the SCIPM pledge:

I shall always be a lover of God and my own soul,
And the souls of my sisters & brothers;
And always be eager to observe what I have promised to God.
I shall stay in God’s love always,
And shall never ever depart from Him. Amen!

The structure of an Intercessory Prayer Session (90mins) is as follows:

  • Praise & Worship
  • Listening to God’s Word
  • Confession
  • Thanksgiving
  • Intercession

  • General:
    Petitions will be picked and taken home by Members to pray and intercede every day for a week before returning them back to Adoration Chapel on following week
