Prayer Intentions

We have a number of prayer teams at Sacred Heart Parish that want to pray for you or a family member’s needs. You can choose the option that best fits your need and level of privacy.

Rosary Crusade – A 15 day rosary offered for your special intentions. The Rosary Crusade is coordinated by Diana at 402-841-6355.

Prayer Line - Prayer for individuals in crisis. Parishioners may call to request prayers for loved ones or for anyone in need of extra prayer. Contact the Parish Office at 402-371-2621.

Prayer Intention Books
Prayer Intention books are now located at both St. Mary’s and Sacred Heart Churches.
You are welcome to add your intentions into the book to acknowledge blessings, request petitions or prayers for the sick, the homebound, the suffering, the local and universal Church, the needs of the world, and all who need prayers.
You will find the Prayer Intention Books in the Narthex gathering space and the Adoration Chapel at St. Mary’s Church and in the South foyer at Sacred Heart Church.
Please keep these prayer intentions in your daily prayers and the parish will remember them in our prayers also.

Parishioner Intentions – These Prayer intentions are read at Mass, listed in the Weekend Bulletin and included here on the Website Prayer Intentions page.
In order to balance the privacy of individuals and the work that God has called us to do in praying for one another,  we ask you to please abide by the following guidelines for Parishioner Intentions:
--This type of intention is for current parishioners only (for other family and friends, please choose another Prayer option above)
--Prayers can be requested by a parishioner for themselves, a spouse, or a minor child.
--A member of the immediate family (parent, sibling, adult child) may make a request with the parishioner’s express permission.
--Be respectful of a person’s wishes at all times. Some parishioners are very private and do not want to have their name on a prayer list or announced at Mass. There are other more private prayer options (see above)
--In order to honor as many requests as possible, we will maintain their name on our list for 2 weeks
--Requests must be called in to Reggie at the Parish Office.
--Requests may not be added at Mass times. Listing in the bulletin will follow regular Bulletin deadlines as published.
