As most of you know, our pastor, Fr. John Tran, is in Oklahoma City, where he underwent surgery on August 17 to donate a kidney to a friend and fellow priest. He and his friend are both doing well. Fr. John wishes to pass on his heartfelt appreciation for the many prayers and words of support from so many at Mary, Queen of Peace. The power of prayer carried him through the surgery and sustains him during his recovery. He is grateful, as well, for all those who are keeping things afloat at Mary, Queen of Peace as well as for all those who have cared for him in the hospital and for those who are caring for him at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Oklahoma City, including the Vietnamese community there. Fr. John will stay in Oklahoma City until his post-op visit in two weeks. He is staying at the rectory where the recipient resides, and he is being well cared for while there. We will continue to hold Fr. John and his friend close in our prayers as we know he will keep Mary, Queen of Peace close in his heart.
