Prayer Intentions

Prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.

St. Therese of Lisieux

If you are in need of prayers, please let us know.

Our prayer team (intercessory prayer warriors) will pray for you and your needs. If you or an immediate family member is sick, they can be added to our bulletin’s Sick List, just note it in the form below.

Chapel Candles

If you wish to have a candle burning for your intention in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, you will find envelopes on the shelf in the Narthex near the Priest’s Sacristy or in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mercy

St. Augustine of Hippo

Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world by your generous consent! Receive our gratitude, and by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable them to make our peace with God.

Holy Mary, help the miserable, strengthen the discouraged, comfort the sorrowful, pray for your people, plead for the clergy, intercede for all women consecrated to God. May all who venerate you feel now your help and protection. Be ready to help us when we pray, and bring back to us the answers to our prayers. Make it your continual concern to pray for the people of God, for you were blessed by God and were made worthy to bear the Redeemer of the world, who lives and reigns forever.


The great men and women of God were great intercessors.  Intercession is like a “leaven” in the heart of the Trinity.  It is a way of penetrating the Father’s heart and discovering new dimensions which can shed light on concrete situations and change them.  We can say that God’s heart is touched by our intercession, yet in reality He is always there first.  What our intercession achieves is that His power, His Love and His faithfulness are shown ever more clearly in the midst of the people.
