We have formed superconducting metal contacts to graphene, resulting in supercurrent through graphene visible up to several degrees Kelvin. In our geometry, graphene bridges a gap between two closely spaced superconducting wires. We have found that passing a current along the length of one of the wires periodically modulates the magnitude of the supercurrent through graphene. We discuss the origins of the observed interference patterns
