Please pray for Tarik

Eucharistic Adoration, tonight, 7-8 pm, SAA Church. All are invited!
Please pray for Tarik Green, a student at St. Andrew’s school, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Tarik is doing better now and the cancer is in remission. The following are some comments from a St Andrew’s parent and friend of Tarik’s family:

“Please pray for Tarik and for his family as they deal with Tarik's illness. Please pray for hisrecovery and to offer his family the support of our school community. Tarik's mom requests that we lift Tarik up in prayer and to pray for his family to stay strong for him.

Tarik's mom has set up a volunteer coordination websiteto help them track who is available to help them during this difficulttime. If you would like to volunteer to help, please complete the infoon "Interested in becoming a member of this community" at
She hopes to update the calendar sometime this week with the kind ofsupport they need and you can sign up for the things that fit yourinterests and time. Any help will make a huge difference…

Tarik is in remission. He still has a lot of treatments ahead but this is great news. I had sent an email a few weeks ago for a volunteer site to sign up for meals, etc. If you have not already done so please check out the site and see if you can volunteer for a dinner.”

A prayer for Tarik, from the Mothers' Manual:

For The Health Of A Child

Holy Mother, health of the sick and constant aid of those who pray to you, please speak with me to your divine Son. He showed himself loving and merciful in healing the afflictions of the body, as well as those of the soul. Pray with me, then, that my child may regain full health and bodily vigor; and, with strength restored through your assistance, may he [she] become more deeply aware of the goodness of God and understand better your all-embracing motherhood - and so glorify God and honor you by holiness of life and service of others.

Mary, sorrowing, Mother of all Christians, Pray for us!

One way to help those diagnosed with leukemia is to join the National Bone Marrow Registry.

Immediate family members are not always a good match for marrow donations, so having an extensive donor registry can be essential to providing lifesaving treatment. Especially needed are those in minority groups, particularly African-Americans.
