Prayer Chain Ministry
"Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 22559).
"When we share in God's saving love, we understand that every need can become the object of petition. Christ, who assumed all things in order to redeem all things, is glorified by what we ask the Father in his name. It is with this confidence that St. James and St. Paul exhort us to pray at all times" (CCC, 2633).
"Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints" (Ephesians 6.18).
The St. Mary's Prayer Chain is a network of parishioners who receive prayer requests and thanksgivings, forward them by telephone to the next person in the network, and then pray immediately for each request. Prayer is at the heart of our life together in Christ. The prayer chain is the parish's spiritual alarm system which communicates and takes prayerful action on behalf of the needs of the congregation and our community at-large. The vocation of the prayer chain is to intercede on behalf of others in need by lifting up to the Lord Jesus Christ specific requests, concerns, and emergency situations.
To request prayer for someone, please call the St. Mary's Prayer Chain Voice Mail Box (see phone number to right). Messages are checked and relayed daily. All prayer requests are kept confidential within the prayer network.
