Praying for one another is an exercise of our baptismal priesthood and a venerable practice. When the community gathers for the Mass, it prays as one body united to Christ in praising God and for the sanctification of the people of God. Remembering specific people in the Prayers of the Faithful is part of this practice. The Prayers of the Faithful provide you with an opportunity to request prayers for the deceased, the sick, special occasions, etc. These requests will also be placed on the website if so requested. Requests may also be forwarded to those involved in our Prayer Ministry so your concerns may be lifted up to the Lord by others in the community.
Note: Beginning January 4, 2021, family connections (e.g., mother of Mary Jones, etc.) to our recently deceased parishioners will no longer be read as part of the Prayer of the Faithful petition, only the name(s) of the deceased. However, the names of the immediate family members who are parishioners will be listed with the name of the deceased on our website.
We will no longer offer cards for Prayer of the Faithful requests. Cards will now only be available when requesting a Mass Intention.
Prayer requests are accepted up to 1:00pm on Thursday for the upcoming weekend Masses. We cannot guarantee names will be recorded/logged for requests received after 1:00pm on Thursday for the upcoming weekend liturgies. These requests will be listed the following weekend.
