Dear [name redacted],

I had sent you an email requesting your help for our first Bay Area Mass Mob for Fathers Illo and Driscoll at the Star of the Sea back in April.
We now have a Bay Area Mass Mob coming up on June 27, 2015 for Father Jeffrey Keyes at St. Edward Catholic Church (5788 Thornton Ave, Newark, CA 94560).

“Long-time pastor of St. Edward Church in Newark, CA, Father Jeffrey Keyes, CPPS, is being sent by his order on a sabbatical beginning June 28 before being reassigned. Father Keyes, an accomplished musician and composer, has established a flourishing liturgical life in his parish including both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and a music program featuring Gregorian chant and polyphonic sacred music. Father Keyes volunteers countless weekends for the Retrouvaille marriage program for the Diocese of Oakland. He will be sorely missed. Please pray for his speedy return to our diocese!”

We have created an “I Support Pater Jeffrey Keyes” Facebook page 48 hours ago, and we already have 329 [now 827] people that have liked the page.
