February 12, 2010. Wakefield, RI.  During this Year for Priests, there is a great need to support the Holy Father and pray for vocations. Ancora, an international girls’ club, has been doing just that since it was founded in 2001 by the students at Immaculate Conception Academy in Wakefield, RI.

Ancora’s stated mission is to “respond to the call of Christ by committing to support the Holy Father and vocations […] through prayer and apostolic action.” Now, a new Ancora web site provides girls with tools and information to live out their goal of prayer and support for vocations.

• The Pope
