Prayer Ministry: Praying for our Youth
“And this is the boldness we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” 1 John 5:14
As we look to offer more opportunities to grow in our own faith and spirituality, we are introducing a new prayer ministry. We are inviting Grandparent’s, parents, encouragers of young people, educators, to just name a few, to come together each Wednesday evening from 5 – 6 or 6:30 – 7:30 and pray for the young people of our parish. We will gather specifically at these times to hold those young people and catechists gathered during formation time in prayer, as well as for the students of St. Bridget Parish school.
A simple format will guide you. You are welcome to come each week or when you can, to gather with others to pray for the needs of the young people of our parish, our community and world. This is a wonderful opportunity to support our young people and witness your relationship with God.
Please contact Jodie in the parish office to inquire about this ministry.
