Prayer Intentions

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Philippians 4:6
As part of the Sacred Heart Academy community, we are united in faith and prayer and keep in our intentions the needs of our whole community. Through prayer, we ask God to provide grace and strength for the members of our community who are experiencing a difficult time. These prayer intentions will be remembered during our Friday masses.

Please complete the Prayer Intention Request form to submit your request.  Intentions will be posted following review by our Campus Ministry Office.
