Prayer Intention Request from Father Hickey


Dear sisters and brothers, peace in Jesus Christ!!

             There is a special need for your prayers.  We are at a point where it is absolutely essential for a stable financial future for Holy Family Parish that we finally sell our former school building.  We have been seeking its sale for almost two years, without success.  In the interim the keeping of the building has proven shockingly expensive.  There will be a last, critical conversation with the interested developer this upcoming week.  That meeting, I fear, will be the last chance to come to a happy conclusion both for the parish and this developer and of course the chance for the low income elderly housing badly needed in Rockland.

            I suggest that every day this week each of us pray a rosary, or just one decade (ten Hail Mary's), or simply say frequently the petition, “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.  Amen.”  Let us engage our Blessed Mother Mary to intercede with her Son, Jesus Christ. God willing we shall sell the building.    And its development will be a blessing for the seniors of Rockland.  However, whatever happens: “Welcome be the will of God!”

     “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.  Amen.” 

              God bless.  JFH.
