The IHM Prayer Chain Ministry began in the early 1980s with a group of nine or ten members who formed telephone contacts to pass on requests for prayers. Through the years, the group has increased to more than sixty members, and contacts are almost exclusively through e-mail.  Requests are received from the parish office or from family members.  Prayer requests are not limited to parishioners.  The process differs from the list printed in the parish bulletin, as most of these requests require immediate attention, which is possible through e-mail.  If you are interested in joining the group or if you have a prayer request to make, contact Ellen Healey,, 317-253-2086 or Gerry Koors 317-251-2562.
