Prayers for Fr. Joseph Cazenavette

April 27th, 2016

Father Joseph Cazenavette, an honorary member of our parish, who in 2005 celebrated his First Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving here at St. Patrick’s and has returned many times to be the celebrant at Mass, has received confirmation that he is in stage three of colon and liver cancer. Father Cazenavette will be treated for cancer at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.

Our thoughts, and especially our prayers, are with Father Cazenavette.

As we pray for Father Joseph, the best way to stay up to date with his progress, send messages, etc. is to log in at the following website of CaringBridge:
