Thank you for your help with donations to help with the funeral of Rachel Nagy. Details are still being completed as a result of the need to reach her family in another state. Hopefully I will have more details Sunday, if they are set.
Please prove the power of the Rosary. I ask you to continue to pray for Janine who is in Grant due to a head trauma. Please pray for her healing. Also pray for Pope Francis.

More than the usual number of calls this week to visit the sick and dying. Please back me up with your prayers!
The Lord be with you!
