Prayer is a basic ingredient for the wellness of our soul as food is a requirement to ensure a healthy body. It is through prayer that we nurture our personal relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

As a family, we gather together to worship and praise God in the Mass. Nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we are strengthened as a parish family to go and to serve the Lord. Reflect how you can assist your parish in making prayer a greater priority.

Altar Servers

The ministry of assisting the priest during Mass is a privilege for any young person who feels called to do so. This ministry is open to all young people in the parish, male or female, grades 6 and up.

Eucharistic Adoration

This is a devotion of personal silent prayer before Christ, present in the consecrated host enthroned in a monstrance on the altar in a small chapel. It is perpetual in those chapels like ours where it is always enthroned outside the tabernacle. This means that there must be at least one person present in prayer 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, every year. Thus every moment of every day we have someone praising God as well as praying for the needs of our families, parish, church, and world.

Prayer Line

The Prayer Line, a telephone calling tree activated whenever a prayer request is made for surgery, serious illness, or accidents, consists of adult parish volunteers in this ministry who pray for members of our parish and their immediate family in time of serious need. Each weekly bulletin lists the names of two parishioners that are to be called as the prayer line activators to begin the calling chain. Those who sign on for this ministry should consider this a serious commitment due to the design of the calling tree, as any break in the chain will result in a complete shutdown of the remainder of the chain, resulting in lost prayers during a time when all prayers are needed most.  Minimum age 18
