The Saint Brigid’s Prayer Tree is looking for volunteers who would like to join their prayer ministry. The only commitment is to have your name added to the tree and agree to pass requests on when you receive them. This usually means making only one phone call. The reward is seeing first hand, how God answers prayers and how prayers are indeed “felt” by those in need. If interested, please call Grace Gallivan at 494-2492 or Cheri Sheridan at 748-7248 or sign up at the back of church.
