For our former priest
« on: March 07, 2007, 01:08:42 PM »
I was told that our retired priest, Fr John, is very ill, and perhaps dying.  Please pray for him, he is a very good man that gave 35 years to our church and even longer to the Lord!!!

May the Lord have mercy on him and his family!

Lord have mercy
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
