Opportunity to Serve: Prayers of the Faithful
We present our requests to God at every Mass during the Prayers of the Faithful and General Intercessions. These prayers are created by fellow parishioners who have stepped up to join a prayer team or work on their own, to incorporate the main theme of the Sunday readings and the needs of our parish into these beautiful prayers. Although we often take these prayers for granted, they truly enhance our Sunday Mass experience.
Through natural attrition, some of the prayer teams are no longer able to prepare the prayers for us. Ideally, we plan to have a minimum of five teams of one or more people so that no one is asked to prepare prayers more often than once a month. Prayer teams are scheduled for a full year for consistency and predictability. We supply the books, “Living Liturgy” and “Companion Missal” which provide guidance to help with prayer preparation. The Holy Spirit supplies the necessary inspiration. This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to engage in the parish but has limited free time or mobility.
If you are interested in this opportunity to serve, or any other ministry at Holy Spirit, please contact Katie Metzger at 408-997-5115 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
