Prayer requests for Fr. Gerard Jean-Juste

 |  NCR Today

Just received an alert from Pax Christi USA concerning Fr. Gerard Jean-Juste. The Haitian priest is seriously ill in a Miami hospital. The leukemia that Fr. Jean-Juste has battled for years is in remission. He is now suffering with bronchiectasis, an obstructive lung disease.

Pax Christi is sent a Prayer alert for Fr. Jean-Juste.

Followers of Bishop Thomas Gumbleton's homilies will remember the bishop talking about visiting Fr. Gerry in prison in Port-au-Prince in 2004, in 2005 and in 2006
