On Thursday evening (22nd September) Fr. John Lynch, MAfr was returning on foot to the retirement home of the Missionaries of Africa in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. Apparently he was knocked over by some young people on bicycles. On arrival in hospital his head injuries were found to be very serious. He is in a coma.
Although Fr John has been working in the Development Office of the Missionaries of Africa in USA and recently retired to our community in Florida, he is originally from Scotland and keeps contact with his family and friends there. We ask you for your prayers for him and all those caring for him.
