Prayers for Father Dan

“Believe in the power of prayer – it is real, it is wonderful, it is tremendous.”

So many of you have reached out asking about Fr. Dan. You have sent emails, called, expressed concern and sent well wishes….all of which have been passed along to Fr. Dan. He is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from our parish of St. Margaret! So many of you have continued to ask…what can I do? How can help? Right now all Father is asking for is prayers!


So, together with the Confirmation program we have come up with a way to do just that!  Each month we will send out a sign up genius.  It will have all the days of that month listed. We are asking that each family sign up for a day that you will pray for Fr. Dan. We will take each of the family’s names who signed up and write them on a colored index card. That card will be added to our bulletin board in the Faith Formation room. We will then take a picture and send it to Fr. Dan so he can see ALL the families who are praying for him!

 Together, as a Faith community, we will help Fr. Dan get through this trying time.

Looking for some ways to pray? See some ideas below:
