Mass tommorrow for trapped miners

"On behalf of the Catholics of Utah, I wish to express our prayerful support for the miners, their families and colleagues during this most difficult time.

Tomorrow afternoon at 5:15 p.m. I will celebrate Mass in the Cathedral of the Madeleine for the miners and their families, as well as for all those who are working so hard and courageously on their behalf. We also pray for the people of Huntington who are so deeply affected by the collapse of the Crandall Canyon Mine.

May the patron of our Huntington Mission, the Archangel Raphael, bring healing and strength to all involved.

+Bishop John C. Wester
Bishop of Salt Lake City"

I just posted this to The Cathedral of the Madeleine blog, The People of St. Mary Magdalene. For those of you who are local, please come and let us join together in prayer tomorrow evening for the miners, their families, and those working so hard to rescue them! For those of you who are not, please add these men to your prayers, for their survival and for comfort and strength to their families.
