Elliot Lake Mall rescuers consider 'extreme measures' in desperate hunt for survivors | News | National Post

Friends: I ask for your prayers for Elliot Lake. Pray for the victims still to be rescued or recovered. Pray for the families and friend. Remember to the men and women who are working is this dangerous environment to find them.

I ask as well that you pray for the clergy of that town, especially my classmate, Fr. Paul Conway. They are now responding to the needs of a growing number of desperate families and are in need of every grace they can get to help to bring some peace and comfort in these terrible days. They will need even more spiritual aid when the begin to bury those who have lost their lives. 

I've been in a similar type of situation myself where a great number of families are in distress at one time and I know how hard it is to continue to be a source of hope and comfort in the face of overwhelming pain, upset and sadness. It was the prayers of friends that sustained in through that terrible time. Certainly the clergy of Elliot Lake will benefit from our prayerful support now.

Thank you.
