Prayer Calendar

n the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for those involved in specialized licensed ministries throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, including lay preachers, Eucharistic ministers and visitors, and lay readers; and for our musicians and worship committees.

Our weekly Parish Prayer List can be found here. If you wish to be visited by a member of our Pastoral Care Team and/or deacon, request prayers for yourself or someone else on the Parish Prayer List, or simply make someone aware of an acute or ongoing need, click the blue button below.

Our votive candle stand is a beautiful symbol of our collective prayers coming into the light of Christ. When you light a votive, please consider leaving a contribution to help fund this amenity.


The Pastoral Care Team has a request for all: as we practice our social distancing, do not let that extend to social isolation. Take a few minutes every day to call someone to see how they are doing – to reach out and say a prayer with them and/or find out if they need anything. One of the things that is so important right now is to connect with our community. If there are those who need help, please let us know and we will figure out how to do that. If you are that person, please inform Deacon Barbara or Pat Trumbull. As Jesus said: Love one another.
