Prayer is an integral part of our faith life. It is our way of talking to God and telling him about our day as well as asking for any help we may need. We can pray ourselves in front of the Blessed Sacrament at Adoration, or we can request others to pray for us at Mass with Mass Intentions or with a Prayer Chain.
Prayer is powerful and helps us to get closer to God.
Mass Intentions can be requested up to 3 months in advance of the Mass you would like to request (see below for dates). A limit of six intentions per year at St. Bonaventure, unlimited intents to retired priests. To request a mass intention, contact the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-278-7556.
Booking windows for Mass Intentions:
On June 1 - for July, August, September
On Sept. 1 - for October, November, December
On Dec. 1 - for January, February, March
On Mar. 1 - for April, May, June

To have someone be included in the prayers for the sick or the prayers for those who have recently died at the weekend mass, contact the parish office at email@example.com or call 403-278-7556.
The St. Bonaventure CWL has a group of prayer warriors who pray for the intentions of anyone who requests them. Contact Lorraine Clark at 403-510-5169 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer intentions for you or for anyone you know that might need some extra prayers.
