Please Pray for My Parish



Please say a prayer for my parish,St Elizabeth of Wilmington De.
The parish is being named in a suit by a former parishioner who claims that a former parish priest sexually abused him years ago.

The parish will be 100 years old in a year and now it is being tainted by this priest who went on to cause suffering to many other children in our diocese. The people of the parish are innocent victims of the churches arrogance and they do not deserve such suffering.

Almighty God and Creator, You are the Father of all people on the earth. Guide, I pray, all their leaders in the ways of justice and peace. Protect the parishners from the evils of injustice, prejudice, exploitation, and conflict. Help them to put away mistrust, bitterness and hatred. Lead this person to find peace, respect, and healing. Grant that they may grow in harmony and friendship as brothers and sisters created in Your image, to Your honor and praise. Amen.


May the parish and all its good people and priests be spared pain and discomfort through this difficult time. May it be resolved quickly, fairly, and equitably so that healing can begin for all.


Dear Gerald…May The Lord bless and deliver your parish and comfort and console all who have been abused and bring repentance to the priest involved. This is a dreadful crime. May The Lord enlighten your Bishop.

Blessings with God’s Peace holding you all close…Barb
