Our kind-hearted swimmers dedicated their meet to Grace Ganet, who is dying of a rare disease. She started the Divine Mercy Chaplet in the Nguyen family’s former parish by praying with people for their intentions before and after Masses. She has done this for more than 1,000 people - and now she needs our prayers! Please join Middle School Swimmers in praying for Ms. Ganet.
