Dallas, United States - August 1, 2020 /PressCable/ —

A new prayer request service has been launched by The Bethany Center in the parish of El Calvario. It aims to help anyone in need of prayers to get the help they need. A confidential form is provided for anyone seeking prayers for health, their job, family or other needs.

By entering their request in the provided form, priests will pray and offer Holy Mass for their needs. The request is a secret trust, fully confidential, and there is never a charge.

The Bethany Center of Community Promotion, or CEPROCOBE, was created in 2012 as a new initiative with the aim to evangelize through the service of charity to the most needy people.

The core focus of the Bethany Center is to work together with local residents to build a more equal society. The center is open to all people regardless of their creed, because they state that the reign of God transcends belief systems.

Some of the most pressing needs that the parish seeks to overcome are poverty, the marginalization of people, the meager opportunities for much of the youth to study, undernourishment of children and more.

Now they aim to identify high-risk situations and propose a series of programs to provide long-lasting and life-changing results. While praying to God, the team puts its best foot forward.

The Bethany Center states: “Encouraged by our faith in Christ, life in abundance for the people, Bethany Center offers programs which help to combat the hunger of children and adults, as well as sickness or lack of education.”

“The programs of the Bethany Center aim at being spots where an effort is being made to live these dimensions, thus promoting true living together of people. We believe there is room for all without exclusion.”

They also have social outreach programs planned, and invite local residents to show solidarity with those who have less.

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean police said Saturday they beefed up security at the U.S. ambassador's residence in Seoul after a group of anti-American students used ladders to break into the compound.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police agency said Saturday the...

Protests squeezing Hong Kong economy, tourism, leader says

Aug 3, 2020

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's economy is languishing after months of increasingly violent protests, the city's embattled leader Carrie Lam said Tuesday. Lam, addressing reporters after a long weekend of more turmoil, said tourism arrivals were down by half and that hotels and retailers were suffering. Hong Kong's third quarter economic data will definitely be "very bad", said Lam, the semi-autonomous territory's Beijing-backed chief executive said. Lam said she did not have the data with her. But empty streets and tourist attractions are evidence of the fallout from the protests that began in June over a now-shelved extradition bill that...

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Aug 3, 2020

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

TOKYO — He sits in an office of a major Japanese sportswear maker but reports to no one. He is assigned odd tasks like translating into English the manual on company rules like policies on vacations and daily hours, though he has minimal foreign language skills. He was sidelined, he says, as retribution for taking paternity leaves after each of his two sons was born. Now he's the plaintiff in one of the first lawsuits in Japan over "pata-hara," or paternity harassment, as it is known here. The first hearing is scheduled for this week. His case is unusual in...
