Emergency Prayer Requests

The best way to contact our Prayer Chain Coordinator, Celeste Lazar, is her through her prayer email address: momceleste@earthlink.net. Please understand she may need to limit the number of words used and, therefore, may need to edit your request.  To ensure the prayer requests are passed along accurately, Celeste prefers that regular email prayer chain requests be sent to her prayer email address. They may, however, be given to her in person also.
