Families of
the Upper Room

Welcome to Our Apostolate

“Families Of the Upper Room” is an apostolate devoted to encouraging prayer among Catholic families in order to fulfill our calling as the domestic church.  Our primary activity at this time is our Acts FOUR weekly prayer group.  Using prayers and meditations rich in Scripture and the wisdom of the saints, the Prayer Booklet provides specific prayers for your child's school, your marriage, and your children.

Our Acts 4 Prayer Booklet follows a completely Catholic understanding of the forms of prayer: invocation, consecration, praise and thanksgiving, contrition, and intentions.  Leader's guidelines are included at the end of the booklet.

“As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. The community of believers was of one heart and mind…” (Acts 4:31-32)

“From the time of the Acts of the Apostles the Upper Room has been understood as a symbol of being brought together and drawn up, rising up out of the world of making and doing.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
