As many of you know, Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro, who has served this past year at St. Mary Church, Norwalk, is seriously ill. We offer to you this letter from Father Boquet, the Director of Human Life International, the organization that Msgr. Barreiro served for many years:
“Dear HLI Family,
I need to ask you something. Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro, who faithfully served Human Life International for over twenty-one years, is in need of our prayers.
Monsignor, who has been courageously battling cancer for over five years, is seriously ill and may be reaching the end of his earthly journey. He is receiving great care from a religious congregation of Sisters dedicated to the care of the sick and dying.
In our last conversation, I assured Monsignor of our prayers. He said in response, “What is important for me is to prepare myself to meet Jesus and prayers are particularly needed to be properly disposed.”
Please join me during these solemn days of Holy Week in prayer for Monsignor and for all who are ill and dying.
Thank you and God bless you,
