  • For Bill Campbell

    Could you possibly pause for moment to pray for Kelly Campbell’s Father, Bill Campbell. Bill is receiving hospice care and his health is declining quickly. Kelly has been involved in the mothers club in the recent past for the four years while her son Danny attended Catholic Central, and graduated in 2017. Kelly remains an active alumni and her father is tremendously supporting of Catholic Central for all of the love and support the school and community has bestowed upon Kelly and Danny and their entire family.

    Please pray that Bill Campbell and his family find the peace, comfort and grace of the Holy Spirit to help guide them through the difficult days ahead.

    Thank you for the comfort we find in Your presence. Through the Holy Spirit we know Your presence is with us. Send us Your peace Lord; the peace that passes all understanding. Don’t let us waiver and doubt. Give us a faith that is everlasting. We release Bills life into Your hands. Teach us how to embrace the coming days with faith. Give us strength to hold up those who are stepping closer to seeing You face to face. Take away the fear in the heart of our loved one who will soon see You; let Bill, Kelly and their family find peace in Your grace, comfort in Your love, and strength in Your mighty power over death. Comfort them.

    ”May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).

  • For Pam Ford

    Could you please take a moment out of this busy holiday time and say a quick prayer for Betsy Adler’s mother, Pam Ford. Their family just found out that she has two tumors on her spine, one of which is at the base of her brain, pressing on her spinal cord.  She will be undergoing surgery and radiation over the next few weeks.  Betsy, a former Mothers’ Club member and her husband Doug, the Past President of the Dad’s Club along with their daughter and son Kellen ’19 appreciate the prayers and support of the Catholic Central Community.

  • Special Need Request for John Cicchelli's '66 wife, Vicki

    • We Need Your Help. I am John Cicchelli, Class of '66. My wife, Vicki, needs a kidney transplant. Please read her story. Thank you.

      I am asking for a few minutes of your time. I am not good at asking for anything, but I am forced at this point in my like to do so.

      In 2012 my doctor required a CAT Scan. The results found I had a mass on my right kidney and, because it was quite large, both the kidney and the mass had to be removed. Fortunately, the outcome was very positive, no cancer. I have led a very normal life since, until last fall. I was told by my doctor that I need a kidney transplant. My left kidney is failing. I have been unwillingly thrown into the world of transplants. I feel lucky to be living in a world where it is possible to be helped. I need to find a match, a donor, someone willing or someone you know willing to donate a kidney.

      Life can be normal with one kidney. Donors are screened by U of M and all information is very confidential. Please call me for more information, and thank you for your thoughtful consideration. I have to try to reach as many people as possible...the reason for my request. Thank you forever!
