Beginning the weekend of October 29/30, there will be a “Prayer Request Basket” placed by the pillar that is nearest to the Offertory Preparation Table in the vestibule of church. (Signs are on the pillar).
You are invited to take a slip of paper from the smaller basket, write a short prayer intention, and then place that in the larger, covered basket. You can also write it at home, and bring it to church with you. These will then be processed up at the Offertory during Mass, and placed in front of the altar. A special intention will be read for all of them. After Mass they will be placed in a secure location, and then, periodically throughout the year, as needed, will be burned, symbolizing our prayers rising to heaven.
Please respect the privacy of others, and only read your own prayers. Thank you.
