The Corpus Christi Prayer Chain is an outreach ministry to support each other in prayer.
People submit their requests and receive spiritual support, through prayer, from our Corpus Christi parish family. As people of faith, we are called to reach out to each other with informed, compassionate care and concern.

Saint John Paul II indicates that people sometimes say they don’t know how to pray. “How to pray? This is a simple matter. I would say: Pray any way you like, so long as you do pray.” You can pray the way your mother taught you; you can use a prayer book. Sometimes it takes courage to pray; but it is possible to pray, and necessary to pray. Whether from memory or a book or just in thought, it is all the same. See, John Paul II, The Way of Prayer, Crossroad Publishing Co. (1995)
The Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday and goes until Divine Mercy Saturday. You can join thousands of people in praying the novena this year! This year there are already more than 170,000 people praying! Will you join us for the Divine Mercy Novena?
The Divine Mercy novena prayers were given to St. Faustina through an apparition of our Lord Jesus. Each day has a new petition that seeks God’s mercy for different purposes. The message of Divine Mercy is a powerful and moving way to come closer to Christ. His Mercy is central to our lives and we must continually depend on it and ask for it daily.
This novena is especially timely in this year Holy Year of Mercy. To read more about the upcoming Year of Mercy and to sign up to receive the Divine Mercy Novena Prayers by email go to http://www.praymorenovenas.com.
