Our Prayer Network Ministry consists of 30 prayer partners. These partners are asked in their daily prayers to remember the intentions that are phoned in.
Calls for prayer are welcome. We also welcome anyone interested in joining this ministry. Please call the Angie at 330-726-3783 or the rectory at 330-743-1109 for more information or to make a prayer request. Requests can also be emailed to StPatricks@neo.rr.com.
This linking of prayers is an important part of our theological beliefs. Hundreds of people have called in over the years with their requests… THE POWER OF PRAYER!
