Each time we gather for Mass we pray for the pressing needs of the Church, the world, our community and those most in need of our prayers in the Prayer of the Faithful (or General Intercessions). Because there is so much in our world in need of being lifted to God through our prayer, we also include all of the specific intentions entered into the Book of Intercession, located in the Bell Tower area near the Baptismal font. All are encouraged to add to the Book of Intercessions the prayers in their hearts that they wish to give concrete expression in writing.
