Deacon James R. Davis

Prayer Chain
Deacon Jim Davis
(732) 446-2371

The prayer chain has 25 members. Some members lived in the parish and have moved away, yet continue to serve the Lord in this way. People call in concerns to a central number. These are then passed on to members. Periodically, a hard copy of the revised prayer chain is mailed to members. Included in this mailing is usually some reflection or suggested prayer for a concern such as some current issue such as elections or flood victims and ongoing issues such as abortion and world peace. Calls and prayer requests have been received from all over this country and even a few from Europe and the Mid East. This chain is open to more people. It is suggested that any interested parties contact Deacon Jim Davis at the number listed above.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process of formation and prayer leading to the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and/or Confirmation for those seeking full initiation into the Catholic Church. Formation sessions are conducted by clergy and a team of RCIA catechists. Participants are encouraged to share and grow in their faith and relationship to Christ and His Church through understanding of the Catholic traditions, Scripture and the active ministries of our parish community.

A separate RCIA process is also available for children ages 7 to 12 and teens who have not had previous religious education.
