Prayer Group Meets on : Every Tuesday & Friday after the evening mass at 7.00 pm.

Meeting Location :  Tuesday - Parish Hall;  Friday -  Chapel

Our Tuesday gathering is attended by regular 15 to 20 committed members and another 5 - 10 members do come whenever possible. We have sharing /fellowship. We have Conrad blessed with the charism of teaching…Our group is blessed abundantly. Of course we do invite guest preachers occasionally.

We have  Bible  sharing explanation by Conrad  once a month -  beginning from New Testament and based on the same we have written Quiz/discussion once  a month. All the participant are expected to come prepared so the discussions becomes more lively. We also keep a note of Birthdays each month and celebrate  by praying  in  a special way that the Lord will bless the member and draw him/her more closer to the Lord followed by fellowship after the prayer gathering. 

The Zonal Gathering started by City Church & St Xavier since last 3years now has  almost 7 other Prayer groups attended  by over 100 members. 

On Thursdays – we have the Gethsamene hour at the City Church Chapel at 930 pm  attended  by 15 members – where we intercede for all the spiritual needs Group & world

On Fridays – we have 30 to 40 members. Every Friday we offer Mass alternately for the Intentions of the week and Thanksgiving for prayers answered.   (Offering of masses is done  since last 5 to 6 yrs) I think this is one reason of our success. We also encourage people to make Retreats.

We prepare Intention sheet every week, where the members bring the various needs of people specially the sick & suffering. We also pray for all the members, including PST Chairman Silven & all Prayer Group leaders be blessed. We are also praying  for the success of National Convention and for all the arrangements.

Friday intercessions are also attended by people of other faith.  We see the fruit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit working in our midst. We have people who testify in the following week of what the Lord has done. Sometimes, even our Parish Priest send us his petitions. We have made it compulsory for every member to learn the word of God which is given every Friday and by now we can claim almost 25 promises of God. This has also strengthened our Group Spiritually.
