PRAYER SUPPORT

Dear Parishioners and Friends,
 
Opportunities for Prayer Support will continue at various Masses in our Parish Churches, continuing on the 2nd and 4th weekend each month.
 
As before, after these Masses listed, there will be the opportunity to come up for Prayer Support.
 
Each person can receive 3 to 5 minutes of prayer with 2 members of the Prayer Teams.*
 
In James 5:14, it says “When anyone is in need of help, let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him”.
 
We encourage you to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity. If you have any queries, please feel free to call Audrey on 0435558390.
 
*The Prayer Teams have undergone extensive prayer training, completing levels 1, 2, and 3 conducted by CCR Brisbane Healing Prayer Centre, and are all commissioned by the Prayer Centre under the authority of our Archbishop Mark Coleridge. This service is strictly confidential.
