Prayer Groups

We know from Sacred Scripture that Jesus often went off alone to pray, and that Jesus taught his disciples to pray. So prayer is an important part of what we do.

Meeting in groups to pray can be an effective way to improve and strengthen our prayer lives, whether by participating in devotional prayer such as Perpetual Help devotions on Tuesday evenings, or by meeting in informal prayer groups that offer prayer on behalf of family, friends, members of the church community, and for special intentions.

Everyone is encouraged to follow Jesus’ example to pray, and Scripture reminds us that “. . . where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” (Mt. 18:20) and “Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive,” (Mt. 21:22). And so, gathering together to pray can be a productive and powerful way to approach God with our requests.
