Prayer Opportunities

Prayer Chain

One of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is to “pray for the living and the dead.” We have a group of prayer warriors ready to pray for those who need prayers. Parishioners and non-parishioners may request prayers for themselves or a loved one. Your prayer request is sent to the prayer chain and the prayer warriors begin storming heaven with prayers for your intentions.

Requesting Prayers

You may email or call us with your information describing your prayer request. We prefer to have the first name of the person for whom we are praying so we can say the name when we pray however requests can be general.

Join our Prayer Warriors

Binding our prayers with others entrusts us all into God’s care – two or more gathered in His name, there is love. We encourage you to email or call us and join the prayer chain in praying for others.

Whether requesting prayers or joining our group, please email the parish office or call the parish office at 262-377-1070.

Prayer List in Bulletin

The bulletin (printed and online) regularly publishes names of parishioners in need of prayers, and all readers are encouraged to pray for them. Due to privacy laws, names are included in the bulletin prayer list only at the request of the parishioner or by a member of the immediate family.

Names are published in a total of 12 bulletins (about three months). If at the end of that time, the person wishes to remain on the list, he or she will need to call the parish office and share that request.

For more information, or to be added to the list, email the parish office.

Pray the Rosary

The rosary has been a treasured Catholic devotion for many centuries. We often recite the rosary to pray for peace and reconciliation, to express penitence, or to pray for an end to the suffering of those who battle poverty and hunger every day. The rosary can be prayed individually or as a group. At St. Francis Borgia, we pray the rosary regularly as follows:

  • Mondays (South Church) – 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Mondays (North Church) – Moms’ group meets at 8:45 a.m. when SFB school is in session
  • Tuesdays (North Church) – 6 – 7 p.m. (sometimes held at the shrine depending on season and weather)
  • First Sunday of the Month (North Church) – 9 a.m. – pray with the Knights of Columbus
