Prayer Ministries

Chapel Prayer Book

We invite you to write your prayer requests/intentions in the prayer book located in our Eucharistic Prayer Chapel [within the alcove of Our Lady of Guadalupe]. Our chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 day a week.

Perpetual Adoration

Our ministers who serve in the Ministry of Perpetual Adoration are prayer guardians who commit one hour each week. They develop and maintain a strong organization of coordinators and division leaders who promote observance of adoration attendance and schedules. Our vision is to implement a spiritual nurturing program of evangelization for adorers. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our beautiful chapel is a place for prayer and reflection, and it certainly is one place where we can find comfort. You are invited to spend one hour a week to keep alive the tradition of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

Prayer Groups

Regularly scheduled groups meet weekly in the Eucharistic Prayer Chapel for devotional prayer: Rosary Groups, Divine Mercy Chaplet, Devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Hora Santa Eucarística, Lauds [Morning Prayer] for Vocations and those in seminary & ordained/consecrated life.

Prayer Line

Prayer Line ministers pray daily with the specific intentions called in from parishioners. These intentions are also remembered at all of the masses throughout the week. The Prayer Line Ministry is always looking for new members to continue this ministry of prayer and reflection.

Prayer List

We believe that God hears our prayers and desires to bring healing and wholeness to His people; body, mind and spirit. This list, which appears in our weekly bulletin, includes the names of people in the parish as well as friends and family of the parish who have a need. We encourage the members of our community to take this list home and pray for those on it during the week. To have your name added to the Prayer List, please contact the Church Office. Requests must be renewed on a monthly basis.

Respect for Life

This committee strives to keep our Holy Spirit parish community abreast of all issues that relate to respect for life in all its forms and to make information available about ongoing programs to all who are interested in active participation. The Respect for Life Committee provides the following: support for crisis pregnancy centers as they minister to women in difficult and emergency situations; support for those suffering from post-abortion distress; voter information on pending legislation for all areas relating to human dignity.

If you are interested in receiving more information or if you wish to volunteer for a ministry, please contact one of our ministry leaders by visiting our Parish Contacts page.
