“Prayer is the lifting up of the mind and heart to God” -St. John Damascene
When we pray
we communicate with God.
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, St. Therese of Lisieux is quoted as saying “For me prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and love embracing both trial and joy.” CCC2558
There isn’t one ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way of talking to God in prayer. St. Peter Parish provides many opportunities for prayer both in private and/or in community at the parish.
Prayer Chain – We welcome you to join our prayer chain so you can pray for the requests that we receive. You can also add your own requests so we can pray for you. We only ask that you keep requests confidential.
33 Days of Morning Glory– Sign up for A Do It Yourself Retreat in preparation for a Marian Consecration by Father Michael Gaitley. This small group gets together at the beginning and the end of the retreat. The reading and praying are done in the privacy of your own home. We end together with a celebratory meal.
Living Rosary – The rosary is a beautiful prayer, so pleasing to the heart of the Mother of God and so highly recommended by the saints and the Church. It is a beautiful summary of the Gospel, the Life of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! You can never go wrong with the rosary because Mary always points us to Jesus just as she did at the Wedding Feast of Cana, “Do whatever he tells you!” We welcome you to join us by saying one decade of the rosary every day for the well-being and intentions of all the parishioners and staff at St. Peter Parish. What a beautiful way to be united in prayer with your fellow
Retreats – Once a year several parishioners attend a men’s retreat and a women’s retreat that is held at an offsite location. Please consider signing up for a retreat. You will be spiritually enriched by the experience.
“Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus”
