Prayer Alert: Fr. Donoghue

Please pray for Fr. John F. Donoghue, about whom you have previously read in this space. Fr. Donoghue is in his eighties and has been in poor health for some time; and for the last week, he has been too ill to offer his customary 7:00 a.m. Mass. The outlook appears to be poor. Please pray for him.

In Father's absence, there has had to be Communion services instead of Mass at 7:00 a.m. Please also pray that, in due course, another priest will step forward and offer the 7:00 a.m. Mass. This is the only daily Mass in Boise that ordinary working slobs can start their day with.

CORRECTION: I have just been alerted to the fact that there is a 7:30 a.m. Mass offered every morning at Bishop Kelly High School, so there is more than one pre-8:30 Mass on weekdays. But we still want the 7:00 a.m. Mass to continue -- hopefully with the incomparable Fr. Donoghue.
