Praise God for a blessing sent from a parishioner – 

My family and I are so blessed to continue to receive amazing news on George. His MRI and PET/CT scans were once again clean showing no evidence of cancer returning to his brain or Lungs. He has had no treatments or radiation in 6 months and God is continuing to heal him from the inside out. He is having positive affects from the depression medication he started a few weeks ago. Thank you to each and every one of you for your continued prayers.
