The Prayer Tree is comprised of parishioners who pray for the special intentions of other parishioners. People call with a request for prayers for someone who is ill or who has died or for any other reason. Prayer Tree members pray in their own homes. The prayer "tree" is actually a telephone "tree" or relay; members are asked to call one or two other members and pass along the request. It is comforting to people to know that they can have extra prayers for someone or something about which they are concerned. This is a ministry for any age or mobility level. All one needs to do is pray when a request comes in and call one or two other people..
