Prayer and Action teams to visit St. Pat’s, Chanute
Teams have visited South Hutchinson
The Prayer and Action Summer Mission Experience visited Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in South Hutchinson last month and will be at St. Patrick Parish in Chanute the weeks of July 8 and July 15.
The three pillars of Prayer and Action are daily Mass at the parish, service work for the people in the area, and finding experiences of God’s grace within the work that day. Each week begins at 5 p.m. Sunday and ends on Friday around noon.
Prayer and Action was founded seven years ago in the Diocese of Salina by then seminarian and now Father Gale Hammerschmidt. After attending several expensive, but moving, mission trips as an adult sponsor, Fr. Gale decided to design his own program.
Fr. Jarrett Konrade, a priest of the Diocese of Salina, describes the reason for Prayer and Action’s success as “the profound presence of the Holy Spirit when people come together to pray and serve their brothers and sisters in Christ.”
Sleeping on the floor and waking up early for morning Mass, before going out and working all day in the summer sun may not seem like the ideal summer vacation, but countless hearts have been impacted by encounters with Christ through Prayer and Action.
Parish groups and individual youth who wish to participate in one of the two weeks in Chanute may register by clicking on the Youth button on the Youth and Young Adult page at the diocesan website, cdowk.org. The Prayer & Action link is on the left side of the page or by contacting the Office of Faith Formation (316) 269-3940. For each six youth on Prayer and Action, one adult chaperone is required.
