THE SOCIETY OF MARY has a daily intercessory prayer ministry. You do not need to be a guild member to submit a prayer request. There are blue prayer cards in the narthex and at Our Lady of Walsingham Shrine in the chapel. There are five categories: 1) In Thanksgiving, 2) For Those Who Are Sick, 3) For those on Need, 4) For the Departed, and 5) For the Parish & Community. Ward members offer the prayer requests at the shrine every day for three weeks. This is separate from the parish intercession list and is designed to accommodate prayers that are more specific in nature. You may renew your request after three weeks or submit a new request at any time. The ward encourages our fellow parishioners to take advantage of this prayer ministry.
