  3. Fr. Doyle, You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. Your devotion to the Lord and Mary his mother will continue to bring you strength. Please have a blessed Easter season. Steve and Julie Mueller

  4. God’s Heart, ‘Our’ Hearts, Individuals’ Hearts, Families’ Hearts, and the Students’ Hearts of Helias Catholic High School have been broken with the harsh accusation(s) of Father Brendan Doyle.

    We can see it, we can hear it, and we can deeply feel it. Not only ‘All of Us,’ but we cannot even imagine how all of the ‘Students’ at Helias must feel and continue to feel during this important time of their lives. Their spiritual, inspirational, loving, caring and understanding mentor, and the wonderful repoire which has been established and shared with Father Doyle has been pulled from under their feet . . . What a helpless and lost feeling after all of these ‘LOVING YEARS!!!’

    Dear Father Doyle, as you truly know, you are forever in our Prayers and Spiritual Thoughts, a ‘Votive Candle’ burns for you daily, ‘Novenas’ are being said, and we continue to recite the beautiful “Memorare” which you always lead with us during Mass . . . You will always be a ‘Priest’ in our minds and a forever friend. And,

    Yes, we continue to keep each and every one of our dear ‘Priests’ close in heart with prayer and spiritual devotion; we all need one another.

    Somehow, just somehow, with the Good Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Blessings, our petitions will help resolve this matter in a ‘positive manner,’ exoneration for Father Doyle!

    As always, we are ‘Thinking of You’ with many special, warm, caring, and loving thoughts and may God continue to Bless, Guide, Guard, Protect and Keep you Safe, Father Doyle!

    Dear Fr. Doyle

    You are in Ruth and I’s thoughts. We have always had the utmost respect for you and always enjoyed the little moments when we got to talk with you. If you are still wondering, Ruth and I are still together after almost 34 years. That’s how long its been since you married us. Hang in there and we will keep praying for you!!!!

  6. Hi Father Doyle!
    I pray for you every day. All that you have done for my family and thousands of others will be remembered and cherished, and we will stand by you no matter what! I know it is so hard for you, but knowing that your friends will be praying for you every single day will hopefully give you some comfort. Take a deep breath each time you get downhearted, and know that God is right beside you. My mama, Pauline does not do email, but she loves the visits from you–and you are forever in her prayers as well. Love and prayers always, Donna and Wayne and family

  7. Faather Doyle is such a wonderful person. We will most definitely pledge to say three Memorares each day. It is the least we can do for him after all he has done for all of us. God Bless you Father and remember good will win out over evil

  10. We are praying for you and all priest of our diocese. I’m sure there has never been a Triduum more close to your walk on earth than this moment. Martyrs are Saints but not always recognizes in this lifetime. Maybe your ministry of late has become a call to wake up the laity of the Church to pray for our Priest. We are praying.

    • Steve and LeAnn, this is a very good and thoughtful comment. I also have known Fr. Doyle for several years as he was my former pastor at St. Martins. I firmly believe in his innocence and join all in praying for him each and every day! A blessed and happy Easter to Father and all of you! God bless you!!

  11. Praying for you this beautiful prayer. It is the one you tested us on for eigth grade religion class at St. Martins

  12. Steve and i are praying for you, Father. We have considered you a part of our family for more than 40 years and are willing to do whatever we can to help you get through this. God bless you!

  13. I’ll be praying. You are a wonderful holy man and lead many of us to the llight to Christ. With love i’ll be praying every day for you. Thank you for all you have done for us and for always being being there for us.

  14. We are praying for you, Fr. Doyle, every day and now the “Memorare” will be included three times a day. You are such a big part of our lives. In Nov. of 1995 you had my late husband’s funeral Mass. Then in Jan. of 1997 you married Ches and I – what wonderful memories!! They will never be forgotten!! We suppport you 100%, Fr. Doyle and we love you. Ann & Ches Kottwitz

  15. Our Prayers , for Fr. Doyle and in his goodness that he has given all parishners of our Church in the pass. he not only comforted those in needof Spiritual, but became more a friend than more could understand. Thank you Fr, Doyle !!

    Paul and Pam Stonner

  20. Father Doyle, we will gladly say 3 Memorares each day for you. We miss you terribly at 10:00 mass at I.C. Church. Your homilies were the best, short and to the point and easily understood by everyone.

    We know God and your many friends will help you through this trying time.

    Bill & JoAnn Wilson

  21. For you and for all of our religious leaders we will pray for guidance, strength and committment in times of tribulations.

  22. I pledge 3 Memorares a day for a year for Fr. Doyle. This good and faithful servant continues to inspire me and so many others who have been blessed by his presence sharing our celebrations and our sorrows.

  23. Father,
    Some People Come Into Our Lives And Quickly go, Some People Stay Awhile And Leave Footprints On Our Hearts, And We Are Never Quite The Same.
    You have touched three generations of our family. What a privelege to have you in our lives. Our prayers are always with you.
    Thanks for the memories!
    Mac & Mert McMichael

  24. Father Doyle,
    Thank you for your positive influence in our children’s lives and in our community. We will continue to keep you in our daily prayers. We are here for you.
    Charles and Ginny Pattyson

  25. Fr. Doyle you have been in our prayers and will continue to be in them until this issue is resolved. Stay strong and God does answer prayers.

    • Father- I pray for you every day. This is my favorite prayer too. You have always disussed the Gospel Readings in ways that make them applicable to our daily lives so that I can always remember your homilies days later.
      You are missed.

  26. For Fr. Doyle I say a special prayer
    To God above that in his tender care
    He will allow our beloved friend not to despair.
    Faith, Hope, and Love he shared for all these years.
    Now it is up to us to step forward with our prayers.
    That God will see fit to remove this cross and wipe away the tears.

  27. Thank you Fr. Doyle for your lifetime commitment to the Catholic Church. I have been and will continue to pray for you and your ministry.

  28. You would have a hard time finding a better man than Brendan. Its a shame that a mans life can be ruined with one ckick of a mouse. It seems to me that from reading posts on News and Tribune and KOMU website that people quickly forget the dedicated 50 years of service and commitment he has given us. I say “let the man (or woman) without sin cast the first stone. I pray that this is all over with soon, we know he is going thru hell with it. I am praying daily.

  29. Herb & Alma Sturm
    We have known Fr. Brendan Doyle since the late 50’s. From day one he was a wonderful friend and priest. We have such a deep respect for him and his faith and for all he has done for us and so many others. He’s a treasure to our family and we will gladly say three Memorares on his behalf for as long as it takes to get this problem corrected. There is no better man walking the face of the earth today. God Bless you Fr. Doyle. We love you.

  30. Fr. Doyle, We are taping a copy of the prayer to our mirrors to remember…Our family will pray three a day! Keep the faith.

  31. I have been praying every day and will continue to do so. I know the Memorare was a favorite prayer of yours. We appreciate all you have done and are behind you now.

  32. I would like to emphasize this website is for prayers for Fr Doyle and all affected –
    priests ,parishioners,students ,church leaders and anyone affected by these actions.
    We all have a lot of opinions on several subjects but please remember this site is for prayers. God Bless.

  33. Will keep you in my prayers. Your burden, like Jesus’, will be rewarded. My family and I remember you fondly and enjoyed your service to our Wardsvile parish and your ministry to our children.

  34. Fr. Brendan, you were the one of the few priests that our children were able to meet, talk and get to know on a level beyond the pulpit. Your influence was so obvious – the kids would just crowd around you at the soccer games like bee’s to honey – you connected with them on level that was a true blessing to them and their families.
    While living in the Jeff City area, we questioned many of the policies of the Diocese. We never felt they had a pulse on our youth-they were living with their heads in the sand. Their recent actions concerning you just re confirms our opinions.
    May this website help you carry the cross you have been given – your are trully loved by so many.

  35. Prayers for you, Fr. Doyle. You’re a wonderful person whom has done a terrific service in the community over and over. You will always be respected and held in high standards.
    Kay Rackers Scott

  36. Our family will continue to support Father Doyle through pray. He iwas the first priest we got to know when we moved to the JC area and was wonderful to our family.

  37. Fr. Doyle, you are in our prayers and will include 3 Memorares especially for you. You will not be left unaided. May the Lord give you the strength to get through this. We are with you.

  38. Thanks for your wonderful ministry at HCHS. I know the kids love and miss you. As a parent, it doesn’t feel the same without you there greeting everyone in the hallways. Continuing to pray for you.

  39. Can never thank you enough Fr. Doyle for all you have done for all the many people’s lives you have touched-especially my son and all the racket ball games you had with him! May God bless you always and forever! I will pray!

  40. I will definately do this for Fr. Doyle. He is such a great person. I had him as a teacher at St. Stan and Helias. He was such a great mentor to me growing up. Thanks Fr. Doyle. We’ve got your back!

  41. We pledge to say 3 Memorares a day for Fr. Doyle. God bless you father and thank you for your service to Helias and the diocese. Our children were positively affected by your presence in their lives.

  42. The official church has severly over reacted in this situation. A good man, a good priest, has lost his ministry and that is a shame. What happened to common sense? What happened to forgiveness and reconciliation?

  43. The Memorae is my favorite prayer, which I pray daily. But I’ll include three more for you,. I firmly believe that you have been misjudged by the Diocesan Board, and pray that they realize what we and Helias students are losing. We will miss experiencing your incredible faith, spirit, and service to our parish and Diocese. Please continue to pray for our family as we pray for you.

  44. Father, as always you are in our thoughts and prayers. Your inspiration and guidance has made us better people. Father, thanks for everything you are truly a great friend to our family.
