:( I hope this post is not inappropriate for this group, but I am trying to get as many prayers as possible for this family.
Joe Herring, a young man in our parish, attempted suicide by gunshot last week. His physical recovery will be long and painful. His mental and emotional recovery will be even more challenging.
Please keep Joe Herring and his family – his parents and 12 siblings -- in your prayers.
Feel free to ask others to pray for this young man also.
