Good Evening all,

We pray that the surgery goes well with no complications and that Anne’s recovery is swift and complete. Thank you. God Bless.

Good Afternoon All,

We have had the following in our prayers and we need to raise the volume a bit.

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sheila M. who was called home. Please keep Sheila and her family in your prayers as the family mourn the loss of their loved one as she enters the Kingdom Of Heaven and is in God’s Eternal Embrace.

Please raise the volume for Michael K. who has a substance abuse problem and is now in the Criminal Justice System. We pray that God’s Hand calms this troubled young man and that the Court will be able to provide him the help he needs.

We pray also for Michael H. who has to undergo surgery for a serious back injury suffered as a result of an accident.

I ask you to pray for a young woman, the daughter of a good friend. This young woman has become addicted to heroin, was recently arrested in possession of the drug. The authorities/lawyers have pointed out that recovery can be as long as three plus years. We pray that the Mother and family, as they struggle to get her the help she needs, receive strength in God’s Love..

My nephew Stephen, who has been in our prayers, has gone into rehab once again for Alcohol abuse. We pray that somehow he gains sufficient self respect to realize that he is loved and has worth well beyond that which he finds in Alcohol.

I ask you to keep my Brother-In-Law and dear friend, Ed, in your prayers as he rebounds from a stroke suffered a week ago. He is doing well but the MDs have cautioned him that the next several weeks are critical.

Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Mendez, Hady [MC1992] posted a prayer



Mendez, Hady [MC1992] posted:

I’m struggling right now and today as I sat in mass fighting back tears, I was inspired with these words:


Help me Lord. I’m lost and afraid. I don’t know which way to go anymore or which road leads to you.

Help me Lord. I thirst so much for the peace that only your love and tenderness can bring.

Help me Lord. I hunger for a life filled with joy that I can freely share with others.

Help me Lord. Because only with your grace, your mercy, and your strength, will I acquire the wisdom I need to bring others to you.

Good Afternoon All,

A week or so ago I asked for your prayers for the Dominican Priests / Brothers in Mosul, Iraq. As of today at Mass, we were told that the Community in Mosul, Iraq, have yet to be heard from. However, a picture has been posted showing the Cross torn down and broken and the Flag of the ISIS Terrorists flying in its’ place. Please keep the Priests and Brothers in your prayers as we pray for their safety and return. Thank you. God Bless.
