Dear Friends of the TLM,
St Rocco Parish on Cleveland's West Side has offered the Latin Mass faithful the Sunday evening opportunity to hear Mass for a number of years. The new pastor, Fr James Mayer, who has celebrated that Mass there for some time, announced that tonight was the final Sunday evening Mass at the parish.
St Rocco's is going through a tough period right now. The parish has two priests, and the other Friar, Fr Paschal Rosa (Fr Pat), is battling cancer, and he is understandably unable to help in the capacity which he did before. This has put Fr James in a difficult position, having to make tough choices.
Please pray for the parish, for the religious community there, for the Mercedarians, and particularly for Fr Pat.
Our Lady of Mercy, pray for us.
St Peter Nolasco, pray for us.
