Church fire


#1

Pray for my parish. Our church caught fire and the roof caved in. Our beautiful building 117 year old building was very well taken care of. The roof was being replaced when the roof caught fire. Please pray we will be able to keep our beautiful old church!

Oh My!!! I will offer my rosary for your beautful church. I am from Lincoln, where is your church located if you don’t mind answering. Would like to focus on that when I pray.
God Bless you and all the people of your church…

Here is the news link to KMEG, our local news. We attend Mass in Sioux City IA. We joined this parish after much prayer. It has been such a wonderfully supportive Church.

Oh my gosh! My prayers are going out to you, and the parish…I pray that there will be enough resources available to fix the roof, and continue worshipping there. :frowning:

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life,
our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor
banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most
gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after
this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.

Praying.

Our Father which art in Heaven
Hollowed be thy name
Thy kindom come, thy will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil

Amen

Praying that they will be able to restore your church…

Hail Mary,

Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,

pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen
