Father Fragelli, Immediate and Urgent Needs, Medical Needs, Mission Family
Dear Friend of the Mission,
Today we ask that you please ask Our Lady's intercession on behalf of Canon Fragelli.
He remains in an artificially-induced coma and is receiving treatment at a highly regarded hospital in Florence Italy. To avoid any more damage to his lungs he has been placed on an ECMO machine which has helped to stabilize his condition. Doctors are saying a tracheotomy is likely and that he will be in intensive care for at least one month after which a couple more months of recuperation will be needed.
His condition is considered extremely serious and now more than ever we ask you to pray to Our Lady to protect him and the mission in these coming days.
Thank you and as always God bless you,
The Mission Support Team

His favorite subject is the Blessed Mother and Catholic doctrine. He preaches every day at Mass and any occasion that presents itself. “Faith comes through hearing” taught us Saint Paul. His official title today is: “Prior of the Mission Saint Therese of the Infant Jesus and responsible for the apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King in the diocese of Mouila.” He is also the Chaplain of the Prison of Mouila.
