Please pray for DelRose Karels, who suffered a stroke two days ago and is in intensive care. DelRose raised her family on a farm near Rosen, and her children attended St. Joseph's school and were taught by the sisters from The Mount.

I really need the experience of my job for at least a year, but in the first couple months my boss has threatened, harassed, bullied, and tried to bribe me. I'm praying for help because I don't know what to do.
