Father Frank Brennan falls ill
We ask that you pray for Father Frank Brennan, who was taken to hospital yesterday evening (2 May) diagnosed with acute renal failure.
Fr Frank fell ill after traveling to Papua New Guinea as a chaplain for students from Riverview College on a trek along the Kokoda Trail.
Despite days of pain and acute discomfort, there are positive signs of recovery under the care of doctors in the Renal Unit at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.
At the moment, Fr Brennan is too weak to have any visitors other than family and Jesuits. He is expected to be in the hospital for the next 10 days.
Updates will be available through the Province Office, on (03) 9810 7300.
Please keep Fr Brennan in your prayers.

Fr Frank will be in my prayers.
We shall certainly keep Frank in prayer and pray for a complete recovery. I write from Ende in Southern Flores, Indonesia on behalf of all of our FCJ Sisters here in Indonesia and those in Australia.
Be assured of my prayers and thoughts for Frank and his family and Jesuit brothers.
All the FCJs will certainly be praying for Frank, those of us who know him from all he has been to so many people in Australia, but also all the sisters who met him in Indonesia.Best wishes for a full recovery.

Prayers are being offered at Masses today at St. Mary's Geelong for Father Brennan by the community and also myself. We are in the middle of a Mission and when I heard I have asked for prayers for Father Brennan and the community will be praying for his speedy recovery and return to health at all Masses. My prayers are also with the Jesuit Community at this sad time of the loss of Father Drake at Campion House Kew. regards from Ann Barfoot.
