Intercessory Prayer   Did you know that you often leave an important part of your relationship with God behind when you leave the Sunday bulletin in the pew after the service?  During the service, we offer a brief “blanket” prayer for those who have asked that we intercede with the Lord on their behalf.  But that prayer is indeed brief.

Making Cards for Fort Stewart Detention Center, El Refugio   Last Year, ten members of St. Patrick’s visited Stewart Detention Center with John Ray.  This Detention Center, in Lumpkin, GA., was built as a prison but operates as a privately owned detention center for immigrants.

They are from all places of unrest and speak English, French and Spanish. El Refugio, a...
