If you want to include names on this Prayer Board and for what intentions, kindly send us their name and reason for the requested prayer to pastor2@sjogparish.org.

Debido a tantas solicitudes de oración y dado que no podemos leerlas todas en nuestras intenciones de misa, estamos organizando un tablero de oración que mostraremos 15 minutos antes de las misas dominicales.
