Fr. Ben Innes

I visited with Fr. Ben today and he looks like Fr. Ben and talks like Fr. Ben. He was in good spirits and hopes to be out of the hospital Friday (tomorrow). His issue was with low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) which is almost the opposite of diabetes. He intends on doing both masses this weekend but may or may not make the picnic. Please keep him in your prayers.
