Throughout the bible there are stories about the power of persistent prayer. If you or a loved one are experiencing an ongoing hardship, health crisis, loss of a job…the list goes on, please contact us. Listed in this section are just a few ways we are able to support you through the prayer of our community of faith.
BOOK OF INTENTIONS AT WEEKEND MASS: If you would like the name of a loved one who is ill to be written in our Book of Intentions for the weekend let us know or write it in yourself when you join us for Mass. Each weekend, our General Intercessions are read from this book. We pray specifically at each weekend Mass for all the intentions and everyone named in our Book of Intentions.
PRAYER CHAIN: Prayer Chain: If you have an immediate or crisis prayer request, let us know. Prayer needs are immediately sent out to the group by telephone and e-mail. All prayer requests are kept confidential.
PRAYER GROUP: The Catherine Prayer Group meets the first Thursday of each month at 8:30 AM in the chapel off the Gathering Area in church. Faithful prayer group members pray for all parishioner requests. They also spend time in general prayer for our community and the world, including prayers of thanksgiving for the blessings we all experience in our lives.
