Missionary Appeal this weekend – September 7 – 8

Missionary Appeal this weekend – September 7 – 8  

Fr. Faustin Rwechungura will be raising money for his Archdiocese of Tabora in Tanzania, Africa. The Archdiocese is 56% larger than our Diocese!

He is fundraising to provide water installations (drilling wells, purchasing water pumps and creating reservoirs) to provide safe and clean water to the people, medication and medical equipment for people with HIV/AIDS, and education for seminarians in their last 4 years of studies before ordination.

In addition, the Archdiocese has a special ministry to albinos who get mutilated and raped because they are believed to possess magical powers of healing and bringing wealth.

This should prove to be an interesting presentation. Please give Fr. Faustin your support.

From Laura Escalera:
Update on Deacon Steve–
It has been an extremely difficult 5 days. In a nutshell, the liver that was transplanted on Wednesday was not viable. He went through many surgeries and it was touch and go for a couple of days. Fortunately he was able to receive a second transplant on Saturday night. So far it appears to be working. He is much more stable. Please pray for both donors and their families, the incredible staff here at UCHealth and for Steve.
Please also pray for Laura and the Escalera Family.

August 8, 2019

Update on Deacon Steve Escalera:
