When word got out that Fr. Cyricacus was attacked, beaten, and robbed during Holy Week the good people of Our Lady of Peace immediately began asking, “How can we help?” And no sooner did they ask the question than then began to answer it themselves.
Another generous parishioner provided a laptop computer to replace the one that was stolen during the robbery. Is there a more generous, thoughtful, or caring parish anywhere in the world?
Still, sometimes healing calls for more than just money and supplies - sometimes it takes a human presence. So ........... Fr Gary is leaving for Nigeria on May 31 and returning to Cleveland on June 10. Fr. Cyriacus will meet him in Lagos and travel with him to Urualla - where Fr. Cyriacus serves as pastor. Fr. G will carry your prayers and best wishes to him. His physical cure is pretty much completed already. Those prayers and good wishes will contribute to his emotional and spiritual healing. A very generous couple in our parish gave Fr. Gary a substantial gift to help pay some of his way.
So watch the web site and facebook for some interesting pictures. And say a prayer that the visa comes through on time for the trip!
