Prayer Request

From CCMA:

Please keep in your prayers the students, parents, campus ministers, faculty, staff and community at Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich. Early Monday morning a fire broke out in an off-campus apartment building housing 21 university students. Thankfully, no one was injured. The uprooted students were given shelter, food and counseling services at the university’s student center on campus. Also keep in your prayers campus ministers Dan Barriball and Fr. James Meyer as they continue to offer support to those affected by the fire.

Also keep in your prayers the entire community at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. As the students, parents, faculty and staff recover from a tornado that ripped through the area on Tuesday, February 6. The campus sustained heavy damage and several buildings and dormitories we completely destroyed. Approximately 19 people were injured but no one sustained any major injuries, including those students who were trapped during the dormitories’ collapse. The university is working on their plan to begin rebuilding and recovering their loses.

Please also keep in your prayers Fr. Ed Branch, D. Min., at Atlanta University in Atlanta, Ga., in the passing of his father; and Fr. J. Friedel, at the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau, Mo., in the passing of his mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both during this time of need.

May God's mercy and grace flow.
