The prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for serious problems. Most prayer chains are for a continuous 24 hour period. Your commitment (from the comfort of your own home) would be one hour of dedicated time spent in prayerful meditation in any form from saying the rosary to reading the bible to formal prayers, to singing – whatever way that you can honor God.
The prayer chain at St. Clare’s is currently looking for more parishioners – especially people that can commit to the hours from midnight to 6:00 a.m. Prayer is a way for each of us to reach out of ourselves for the sake of another – to act on God’s command to love one another. Please think about joining. Contact Gillian at 604-464-0213.
But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.
This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.
