August 26, 2022 – Pastor’s Note

A few scattered notes:

This side of Heaven, we will never run out of people and situations to pray for. I know many people are continuing to pray for Ukraine. But would you also consider praying for the Church in Nicaragua? Priests and bishops are being detained at a level we are not used to seeing outside of China, and I am sure the Catholics in that country would appreciate your prayers.
