Everyday prayers are lifted up by our prayer ministry team members. Trained in prayer and how to prayer, our prayer ministry members are diligent warriors of faith.
Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous person has great powerful as it is working. (James 5:13-16)
As a Church body, we are committed to praying for all those who request a prayer - whether it is during prayers of the people during the worship liturgy or privately among our dedicated prayer team membership. Our members consider it a privilege to pray for others and one another.
Let us pray for you. If you have a prayer request or would be interested in being one of our church's prayer warriors, please contact Fr. Darryl by email here.
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who receive special training to provide one-on-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, the aging and elderly and many other life difficulties and could benefit from ongoing one-on-one Christian care.
Stephen Ministers are well trained to provide specialized Christian care to people in need. They receive 50 hours of initial training. After training our ministers are empowered to provide confidential care, engage in continuing education to further enhance their care giving skills in monthly Stephen Minister meetings. Our Stephen Ministers currently meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at 12 noon.
To learn how to become or receive care from a Stephen Minister, contact one of our Stephen Leaders:

Lay Eucharistic Visitors
Every Sunday afternoon, Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) take Holy Communion to members of our community who are unable to attend the worship service in person.
Lay Eucharistic Visitors are an important pastoral and sacramental expression of our Church community. They are living reminders that the sick and infirm are integral parts of the church community, which is the Body of Christ. LEVs provide infirm members of our parish the sacramental gift of Christ's body and blood, the symbol of the Eucharist, which unites us with Him. LEVs also offer fellowship, prayer support, a listening ear, a caring heart, and a connection to the church community. LEV team members remain dedicated to our mission of providing a ministry of presence, healing, and hope.
We strive to take Holy Communion to our home bound members weekly, every Sunday. We want every member to feel part of our church family, especially those who are physically unable to attend services at church.
If you are interested in being a LEV or wish to have a LEV visit you or a family member or a friend, please contact the Church office by email here.
