Prayers for plant workers

I saw the news that the cheese plant in Ravenna is shutting down in November.

My heart goes out to those people because I and 369 other people were hurt by the Armour shutdown in Hastings. Then after I worked at Premium Protein Products for two months bagging raw meat, that plant was closed.

When I attend Mass at St. Cecilia and listen to daily Mass on the Eternal World channel, my prayers will be offered that these people will find gainful employment elsewhere.

I have now been at our Walmart store for almost four years.
