The Apostolate of Hannah’s Tears


Hannah’s Tears is a vehicle for the practices of the Spiritual Works of Mercy. We were founded in the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio, on September 15, 2004, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows.  We are a contemplative ministry, supporting one another in the present moment on the way of the cross as we meet each-other along the path of life.

Simon of Cyrene is our example as he helped Jesus carry His cross we too are here to help YOU. We are called to bring support to those Our Lord sends on the path of sorrow. We take all those suffering and place their intentions with Jesus at the foot of the altar where HE is ever present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. We are to be imitators of St. Hannah of the old testament as she placed her trust in God alone, St. Simon of Cyrene as we help all those God sends our way along the journey of life and Our Blessed Mother who united her will to God’s perfect plan.

My “yes” to God the Father must be united to His will, He has a perfect plan for my life help me to unite my cross to HIS. Amen

We offer prayer support and comfort to the brokenhearted who suffer the pains of infertility at any stage of life, difficult pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, the loss of a child and the adoption process.  This apostolate intercedes for Catholic doctors, nurses, and their supportive personnel. We also serve as a vehicle of education in the proper channels of Catholic fertility practices as well as offering information resources to those seeking adoption and fertility care. [2 Cor.1:3-5]


We’re here to let you know the Church has always been here for you and always will be!


The laity’s Mission is to pray for the CHURCH and the FAMILY.
