Email Prayer Ministry

We all know someone who could use a few prayers or, maybe we need a prayer or two ourselves!  Become a member of our email prayer chain ministry. The email prayer chain is made up of people who regularly check their email and desire to be part of the prayer team. Prayer requests will be sent via email allowing you to pray for members of our parish and all who need prayers. Sensitivity and care will be taken to provide confidentiality in prayer requests. Only first names are used in the prayer requests, unless we are sharing the passing of a loved one.
