Praying for each other’s intentions is an important part of our parish life. During each Holy Mass, you will usually hear an intention for “the prayers in our hearts and for the special intentions mentioned in our petition book.”
Write your intentions in the Book of Petitions. The parish petition book is located on a stand in the chapel under the gaze of the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. An amber candle burns constantly for these prayer intentions. These intentions will be remembered in our intercessions at all Masses. If you would like the parish to pray for your intention, please write the intention in the book. The petitions in the book are usually anonymous.
Feel free to look back at previous pages in the book to see how God is working powerfully through prayer in our parish family. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to write prayer intentions in our Parish Book
Praying for the sick is something we are called to do as disciples of Jesus. The names of those for whom we are praying are listed in the bulletin, with the permission of the person who is sick or their family. Please call the parish office to add a name to the prayer list.
You may request to have a Mass offered for a loved one or a family member, living or deceased, for a birthday, anniversary, special occasion, or a special intention. Arrangements may be made by calling Phyllis Howley at 877-4404. Mass cards are also available. Please be aware that Mass Intentions are often requested months in advance and a particular date may not be available.
