St. John Neumann Prayer Wall

Bill & Hope Welch

We’ve had great mercy and blessing poured upon us. Thank you, Father, Son and Spirit!

PSA results 0!

Unfortunately, the genetic testing results are not yet in. Either way, radiation – if needed – could not begin until 3 months after surgery (end of June). With the stage and aggressive nature of the cancer removed, radiation is likely.

Please continue to pray for Bill’s health, strength, perseverance, peace and trust in the Lord.

Thank you for everything you’ve done to support us,
Bill & Hope


Please pray for my sister-in-law. She had her second child a few weeks ago and is having a very difficult time emotionally. My brother (her husband) is very worried about her. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hope & Bill Welch

Thank you, Father of mercy and love, for softening the hearts of our son, Adam and his wife, Nikki. They have returned to the faith and their children, Jamie and Riley, came into the fullness of the church through the sacraments this Easter. Thank you also to the many parishioners who frequently heard our prayer before Mass request as “our sons to return to the church”. God hears and answers all prayers for the glory of his kingdom! Amen.

Please pray for my father Darlan. Satan has taken control of him totally. He is against priests and religious people. He does not pray. He is very stubborn angry and has hatred.

Pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism hatred and violence. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God’s will be done in the lives of the world’s leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. Pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. God can turn the hearts of kings.

  • A college friend, Helena Liberatore (Libby) was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma (cancer) a few years ago and after many treatments was in remission. Today she told me the cancer has returned so she begins major (in hospital) transfusions and treatment which will continue for months. I pray for her that God will heal her body and draw her closer to Him. Another teacher friend (Gigi Elliott) who has also battled cancer for 2 years, was recently told her cancer has also returned. I pray for all those, way too many these days, that God will heal them body, mind and spirit!! God has kept me cancer free for 1 year now, and I pray His hand continues to be upon me as well. Thank you.


Bill came home from the hospital on Friday. Please continue to pray for his recovery and for the pathology results to come back favorable – no cancer in the lymph nodes and all cancer removed intact.


Please pray for my friend’s son who
is hospitalized in Isolation with a serious infection which is damaging his kidneys and liver.
