Special Prayers for Emma Noel Jones: Because of complications, the mother of Emma Noel Jones, was put into premature labor with her daughter, who was born at 26 weeks, 10 weeks short of the normal procedure for a child to be born. The birth occurred on Wednesday, July 18th. Parents of Emma are Kayla Kinsey, and Aaron Jones, the grandson of Dicky & Kathy Repp. The induced labor was at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore. Kathy contacted Father Steve prior to the procedure, requesting prayers. Several hours later, Kathy sent Father Steve a message saying; Emma,”Came out kicking and screaming.”  Please lift up Emma, and family in prayer.
