PRAYERS & BLESSINGS FOR THE SICK AND FIRST RESPONDERS

"Lord, we live in fear and uncertainty as we experience the Coronavirus. Be our strength and our hope. Give healing to those affected and protection to all of us. We ask you to calm our fears and trust in You. We also ask the prayers of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, St. Joseph, and Blessed Seelos to strengthen us in this time of need. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.” – Archbishop Gregory Aymond)(PLEASE PRAY FOR ARCHBISHOP AYMOND WHO HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH COVID19)

 
"Let us pray in solidarity for our brothers and sisters here and around the world who are sick. Let us pray for those who have lost loved ones. May God console them and grant them peace. 
 
We pray also for doctors, nurses, and caregivers, first-responders, public health officials and all civic leaders. May God grant them courage and prudence as they seek to respond to this emergency with compassion and in service to the common good.” – Fr. Richard Boever
For questions or information, please call (504) 525-2495.
"We only have to tell God our secrets, our mistakes, and our sicknesses, and he will cure us even while we are speaking."

BLESSED FRANCIS XAVIER SEELOS PARISH PLANS FOR THE FUTURE IN SPANISH FORT,ALABAMA(12 Jan 2020)

Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos Parish in Spanish Fort,Alabama is a young growing Parish full of grace,love and enthusiasm for the Lord.Their Parish Priest,Father James Cink was appointed by Archbishop of Mobile,Alabama in June 2018.It is the first Parish in the Mobile Diocese to be built from the ground up for 40 years.They do not have a church building yet but that doesn`t detere them in the least.This Parish is alive and active and bursting with energy to bring the Lord to their part of Alabama.What started with 400 people attending the first Mass in a warehouse has turned into a joyful and thriving Parish with over 260 families and over 100 youth coming for catechetical instruction.One of the Parishioners,  Judy Sullivan told us " We started with 9 interested lay people and a pastor in June 2018. Our first Mass in late July 2018 held 400 people in a warehouse(Prodisee Pantry). Now we are 260 households with 100 youth coming for catechism every Sunday between our two Masses. The men meet weekly to pray and study. We women still join other groups from our former parishes for study and prayer. We still borrow the 900-square-meter warehouse every Sunday: setting up chairs, altar, tabernacle, candle, classroom-tables coffee-station pastries-and-juice table. After 5 hours we pack everything away so the warehouse owners can conduct business on Monday. By the time we build our own church, we will be accomplished co-workers and the first financial donors are those who schlep supplies every week! << that's an inside joke."
