The Prayer Chain ministry began in the early 1980’s by a group of nine or ten members who formed a chain of phone contacts for passing on requests for prayers. In the last two years, the group has operated primarily in an e-mail format, however two groups or ten still function as a phone chain. Requests are made to any of the three contact persons who then pass the request on to the others. The group meets annually at the home of a member. Prayer requests are not limited to parish members.
