Christmas: Change of Plans

Because of Fr. Cyril's health, it's been difficult for Holy Spirit Mission to find a replacement priest, especially one who can do a High Mass.  Because of that, the mission will not have a Christmas Eve Mass, and will instead have one at 8 PM Christmas night.  That's the Mass at which RPC will sing, unless you hear otherwise.

Prayers Requested

From our director, Kathy Reinheimer:
I ask you again to pray for Father Cyril Apassa of Holy Spirit Mission.  Father has had two strokes over the past couple of weeks. [...] He evidently is responding to treatment but it will be a long road back for him.  There is some speech impairment, which seems to be responding to therapy.  He is very weak and extremely tired.

He is such a faithful priest and an ardent supporter of Regina Pacis.  I know we all commend him to Our Lord and to the Blessed Mother, to whom he has a special devotion.

I know from personal experience what prayer can accomplish.  Please pray for him.
Also, please continue to pray for RPC member Pat Laizans who has been in the hospital for the past two months.
