The Story

Father Kevin Sweeney was admitted for minor, sudden surgery on Thursday June 1 2017. He developed  respiratory complications and is now fighting for his life on a ventilator in the ICU, where he has been since Friday.
This is a tremendous financial hardship to the Sweeney family. Kevin was working three jobs and his wife, two jobs to make ends meet.
Kevin has been giving to the Gloucester community since he accepted the role of pastor to St. James Anglican Church six years ago. He is a founding member of Gloucester's G.U.E.S.T. program, which provides overnight accommodations, hot meals, and more to the homeless in Gloucester.
Kevin and his family need your help now. Please pray for his healing, for the medical team who is attending to him, and for all those who love him as they stand by and wait for a miracle.  If you are able, financial assistance is much appreciated, in any amount. Thank you and may our Amazing God bless you for your generosity.

Took Fr Kevin for a vascular study for his Left leg blood clot. It is in the lower part of his leg. It is still there.
It has changed some since the last study last week. Can't put him on blood thinners because of the hemorrhage he had in his lungs.  So for right now they just want him to stay on the aspirin. Still getting physical therapy 2 times a week at the house. Baby steps forward it seems. Still vert weak and has some memory issues which they say in time will clear up. Keep this prayers coming for his recovery. Much appreciated. God Bless  Alice Sweeney
