Our dear old chaplain, Father Michael Jarecki, now has cancer. His tongue and oral glands are affected now, but the malignancy will likely spread and take his life. Father will be 95 years old if he makes it to the Feast of Saint Bruno on October 6. The oncologist’s prognosis is that Father has two months to a year to live.
Please keep this old priest in your prayers. He has served Jesus and Mary well over his many years.
There is a brief tribute to Father Jarecki on the IHM School site. We also published a newsletter with several tributes to him, which you can see below:
