This from the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
Please be aware of a 'Pay for Prayer' scam from ‘St. Mary’s Prayer Center Ministry.’ This ministry is not associated with the Diocese of Grand Rapids or any of its parishes or schools. The scammers call requesting money and tell potential victims that, in return, they would receive prayer. Should you receive a call, or voicemail, from 'St. Mary's Prayer Center Ministry,' please do not respond.
We can turn to God in prayer at any time. He is listening and knows our needs. If you are in need of prayer for yourself or someone else, we encourage you to pray on your own, or invite a friend, family member or even a stranger to pray with or for you. Also, many of the parishes in our diocese have free prayer lines or prayer ministries and would be happy to receive your request for prayer.
Our next session is on Monday, December 17th. Begins at 7:00 and will go until 8:30 PM. There was a nice turn out this past Monday. Don't worry if you missed the first two sessions. Feel free to come and see what the Holy Spirit is doing in your life. See you at St Vincent De Paul Hall, Knights of Columbus, 21130 32nd Ave, Conklin, Mi.
This is a continuation of the series from last years Advent season, the next session is week 10 and going thru to week 14. Even if you did not attend the first 8 sessions, you are encouraged to join us on this amazing series to learn how to open your heart to the whisperings of the Holy Spirit.
Join Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR in the continuation of this incredible 14 part series, which is awakening God’s love and transforming power in the hearts of all who participate. Discover the Holy Spirit who has been revealed to us by Jesus Christ and who leads us to our heavenly Father.
This adventure consists of Fr. Dave speaking on an attribute of the Holy Spirit, a practical application on how to respond to the Holy Spirit and testimonies of people from across the Country whose lives have been impacted by the Spirit of God.
Just a reminder: Any tags that were taken from the Giving Tree need to be returned by December 16th. Thank you and God's blessing for your generosity!!!
