Please Pray for Fr. McKenna
edit_button

I have been saying prayers for a priest who recently went through surgery. The woman who knows him and asked for prayers through a Yahoo Group that I frequent, sent this email today. I ask all of my readers, to please say a prayer for him:

"A quick thank you to all of my prayer warrior friends who have been praying for our Pastor Emeritus James McKenna. I wanted to update you on his condition. He is out of surgery and is now taking chemotherapy and radiation to his lungs and brain respectively, and he DEMANDS more prayers from all of us. He is in good spirits and he humbly thanks everyone for their steadfast and continual prayers. I truly wish you could all know him personally. You would indeed love him as his parishioners have. He has never left the side of those in the hospital when they needed him."

February 7th Update: I posted an update on Fr. McKenna
April 15th Update: Prayers are needed desperately
May 6th Update: Fr. McKenna has not improved.
May 28th Update - Fr. McKenna has died.
