Prayer of the Faithful

Also known as the General Intercessions, the Prayer of the Faithful is written by members of the parish.  Each writer (or team of writers, such as a husband/wife) writes all the “POFs” for one month, including Holy Days that may fall within that month. Intentions must be submitted to the Minister of Liturgy by noon on Wednesday for approval and editing.

If you think you would like to try writing the Prayer of the Faithful at some point in time, please contact Jeanne Craig. The schedule can be found online at this link.

The formula for the Prayer of the Faithful is as follows:

  1. For the Church
  2. For the salvation of the world
  3. For those oppressed by any need
  4. For the local community
  5. For our sister parish, Resurrection
  6. For the sick
  7. For the deceased
  8. For our own personal intentions
