During the service the congregation prays together for those on the Intercessory Prayer List listed in the service bulletin. In the Prayers of the People, we pray together for other churches in the Anglican Communion and our Diocese, our priests and members of our parish generally and specifically. Prayers can be said for loved ones who have died or are ill, grieving, or facing adversity. Prayers of thanksgiving can be said for joyous events such as marriages, births, anniversaries, or special people in your life. You may add your petition to the prayer list by filling out a prayer request form (in the pews), calling the parish office at (978) 922-3438, or simply adding it silently or aloud during the Prayers of the People.
The Prayer Circle is a ministry that offers prayers in confidence for parishioners who want to maintain privacy. Complete a prayer request form or email Carrie Kimball to place someone on the Prayer Circle list. The list is updated weekly. A team of parish members prays for those on the list throughout the week. You also contact Carrie if you wish to join the Prayer Circle team.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry provides a tangible sign of the care and concern of God’s people to someone in need of comfort. Members of the parish knit or crochet prayer shawls that are then blessed during the service. If you know someone who could benefit from a prayer shawl or would like to join the team of knitters, please contact the parish office.
