WHAT IS A PRAYER LINE? A Prayer Line is a line of communication among believers who are willing to be “on call” to pray for a specific need. The set up allows prayer requests to be relayed immediately without waiting. You can be a part of this very important ministry, receiving prayer requests either by phone or by e-mail. Call Kathy at the Parish Office 320-532-3122 or Tina Dickson at 320-532-5038, if you would like to use your time and talents in this way. Also, if you have a prayer request for a specific need, call the Parish Office or Tina Dickson.
