Please add Strangelove to the OCICBW prayer list. He's going in this afternoon (21st. January) for the first of tests related to recurrent prostate cancer. According to his doctor, "This is not a runaway train." His doctor believes that the recurrence can be contained and inhibited at this stage, and that Strangelove will live for many more years. Reliable sources have told us recently that most men die with prostate ca instead of it. We hope and pray that this will be the case. Still, knowing that you all are praying for him will give us much comfort and joy.


From JCF:

Took my job test today. About 150 or so people - everyone looking as knowledgeable, professional (and desperate) as me. Test was hard I'll hear results in about 3 weeks. Continuing prayers appreciated!



I just received distressing news from the Rev. Pamela Cranston, Vicar of St Cuthbert's, Oakland:

"The Rev. Connie Hartquist Jacobs phoned me early this morning to share the distressing news that her husband, Tom Jacobs, a valuable and faithful member of this parish, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. They went to Kaiser hospital in Fresno last night and after extensive tests, he was diagnosed early this morning. Apparently, Tom has a very large mass on his bile duct. She [said] they would be learning more about his case as the doctors do more tests."

Please keep Tom and Connie in your fervent prayers at this time.

THE PRAYER LIST – 23RD. JANUARY 2011 — 5 Comments

  1. It is actually a very rich time of prayer for me when I click on through to the candle site. Folks, if you haven’t been there, it’s more than just clicking on a candle. It’s a guided meditation. Really lovely.

    So, yes again:
    Candle lit.
    Prayers said.
    Love sent.

  2. I know Strangelove, but I have to hear the news here 😉

    Prayers arise. He and Elaine are good folks and a huge asset to our parish…
