Oremus pro invicem (Let us pray for one another)

At this time, when we cannot make use of a physical ‘petition book’ – let us continue to prayer with, and for, one another.

    Please put my son-in-law, Ron, on the prayer chain.  My daughter Susan just left him at the ER.  Among other things, they’re going to do a chest X-ray to see if he has a fluid build-up.  They’ll also test him for the COVID virus, but the results won’t be known for 2 days.  He’s had many serious health problems over the years so he’s very susceptible to anything going around.
    Thank you.
    Carrol Wilhelm

    UPDATE: I wanted to let all our pray-ers know that my son-in-law’s COVID test came back early, and the results were negative. He has some other issues, but he’s feeling much better, and all of us are certainly grateful for that as well as for all the prayers.

    Please pray for my son-in-law, Ron Gatts. He suffers from many health problems, and now he’s in an ER with nausea, pain, possible fluid build-up, and, of course, possibly the corona virus. He’s very susceptible to anything going around. In 2 days we’ll know the results of the virus test. Thank you so much.

    Please pray for my friend, Colette Beaudroux and her husband John Andreas. She’s in serious condition in the hospital, suffering from COVID-19.

    I (Deacon Tom) have been trying to touch base with parishioners via telephone since COVID19 has eliminated the “face-to-face”. In these conversations parishioners have asked for prayers for the following people. Their specific need and their last names are irrelevant. But the fact that prayer has been requested should be enough that you and I will name them as we enter into prayer… Joseph, Mark, Kevin, Vincent, Rick, Rita, Jessie.
