Update on Canon Fragelli – November 24, 2021

Father Fragelli, Mission Family, Prayer, St. Frances de Sales School


Dear Friends of The Missions and Canon Fragelli,

We wanted to give you a brief update on Canon Fragelli's condition and ask for even more prayers for his recovery,

Canon Fragelli remains hospitalized in Sienna where he recently underwent a double lung transplant. His sister Maria is still in Italy caring for him and reports that the doctors feel the surgery went well.  

He is obviously still in critical condition and is heavily sedated. Maria tells us his blood pressure and color look good and they are very happy that he is finally rid of the ECMO apparatus and the tracheotomy.

These next days are critical to fighting off infection and rejection and more prayers than ever are needed. So we beg you to keep up the spiritual battle for Canon Fragelli.

Please pray also for Canon Alexis Rouquayrol who has graciously answered God's call and taken over the mission duties. He has posted a new mission report on the website.

We will share updates as they become available.

May God reward you for your prayers! 

~ Friends Of The Mission.
