The St. Peregrine Cancer Ministry welcomes people who contact the shrine seeking support for them self or a loved one. Volunteers ask if the patient would like to be featured in the lobby of the shrine for an allotted amount of time. If so, the patientís first name only and a brief history of their condition are posted so that all who enter can keep them in prayer. In addition, note cards are personalized with their name. These cards are placed on a rack near the screen so adorers, our school children, teen groups, prayer groups, and shrine visitors can pick them up and write the time and date of their prayer as well as notes of encouragement. These cards are mailed to the patients to bring hope and assurance that they are in our hearts and prayers.
Through the continuous outpouring of prayer, we seek to promote the intercession of St. Peregrine and the other saints featured in the Shrine, as we incite the presence of the Blessed Mother who continual watches over us, and the unyielding strength of the Holy Spirit for whom we surrender our total trust and faith.
If you or a loved one would like to be featured in the Shrine for these special prayer petitions, please contact us by phone, email, U.S. mail, online, or drop in during office hours.
Please be sure to obtain the patient's consent before making a request on their behalf. Patients will be featured for a limited time of approximately 2-3 weeks. They will then be indefinetly placed in the Book of Perpetual Prayer kept beneath the altar. Each patient will also be prayed for during our mass intentions, first Monday Healing Mass, and twice monthly during our prayer group ministry.
