The Intercessory Prayer Ministry originally began as the St. Faustina & St. Francis Prayer Group in 2004. It was the brainchild of the late Tom Mahoney and Sylvia Green, both medical professionals. Their concern was that many of the critically ill patients in their care did not always have prompt access to a priest for Anointing of the Sick. Although local priests would always do their best to accommodate the sick and dying, it became apparent that more vocations to the Priesthood were critical. The main prayer focus of the group became “an increase of holy men to the Priesthood.” Prayers have been answered, as we have witnessed three good men ordained since 2004. Fr. Leo Ortega, Fr. Larry Revilla and Fr. Gilbert Guzman who each celebrated their first Mass at Assumption
We continue to pray for vocations to the Priesthood, Deaconate and Religious Orders. On October 13, 2017 our very own Rose Princess, Zena Brown, entered the Cloistered Carmelite Order in Alhambra and has been named Sr. Faustina Mary of the Holy Eucharist. We are so blessed! We also pray for those on Assumption’s prayer list.
We are still going strong after fifteen years, our Intercessors have increased in number but we can always use a few more Prayer Warriors. We are open to all prayer requests BIG or small. We continue to meet in the Church on most Mondays throughout the year at 7 p.m. Please come and join us as we gather in Jesus name.
Matt. 18:19-20 “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
