Blogs and social media are probably poor forums to make prayer requests, but I use what’s available to me.
First, please pray for St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Grand Rapids, MI. After nearly 70 years the parish is looking down the barrel of being shuttered by 2018 due to the financial well starting to run dry. Eastern Catholics have never had a large presence in West Michigan and St. Michael’s remains to this day off the local Catholic radar. Ideas are currently being kicked around on how to keep the parish going, but your prayerful support would be most appreciated.
Second, please keep me in your prayers as I am currently dealing with some very heavy personal matters while also trying to search out new employment. Both have obviously taken a toll on my blogging, but first things first as they say.
