For our Deployed Vermont Soldiers

While many of us have heard of prayer chains, few of us have seen one. The parishioners of St. Luke’s Parish in Fairfax decided to provide a visual reminder of the prayers being offered up for our troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq and other parts of the world.

The idea came about as a way for parishioners to encourage and support the troops in the recent National Guard deployment which included their pastor, Father John Feltz.

The idea was simple, create a chain of paper links to be displayed in church. Each chain has a prayer written on it for the troops. The paper strips change color with the seasons and are available to anyone who wants to participate. There is no limit to the number of prayers one can add. The chain is a tangible reminder to pray always for those who are in harms way. Pictures of the chain have been sent to Father Feltz so he and those who serve with him can see how much they are lifted in prayer. St. Luke parishioners will continue to extend the chain adding prayers for the safety of our troops.
