Bishop of Rockford, Il Malignant Cancer on Lungs


This is a request for prayer for the Bishop of Rockford, Il, Bishop Thomas Doran. It was learned this past week that two tumors were found in his lungs one of which was malignant. He underwent surgery Thursday Dec 14 at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The doctors believe they got all the cancer but they had to remove a portion of his one lung. The pastor of our parish is praying a novena of the Divine Mercy Chaplet which began Saturday Dec 16. Thank you
