Prayer and Life Workshop

Wednesdays, September 7 – December 21, 2022, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., Parish Hall B

Home, family, demands at work, life can be challenging. How do you meet the challenge? Do you pray? Sometimes prayer is described as talking to God. It is listening too, and being open to the abundant good He seeks in our life. There is peace only God can provide. The Prayer and Life Workshop is 15 weeks, to grow our prayer life. Each week we explore different prayer methods and enhance your prayer life.

Parish Intercessors

Mondays, Beginning September 19, 2022, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m., All Purpose Room

Parish Intercessors is a group of parishioners who commit themselves to pray often for the intention of the spiritual renewal of every member of our parish family. Every day we focus our intention through a special intercessory prayer to Jesus the Good Shepherd and we include that intention in the prayers, works and little sacrifices we make throughout the day. Prayer is daily and we meet in person every six weeks on a Monday morning.
