Prayer for Vocations begins June 2-3
On June 2 and 3, our parish will begin a program that encourages families and individuals to pray for vocations. To bring awareness to the dire need for more vocations, and to assist your daily prayer, a packet containing a crucifix, instructions, and prayers for the week, will be handed out to volunteers at the conclusion of each weekend Mass.
All parishioners have the opportunity to participate in this time of prayer by signing up on the list provided in the back of each church. Questions? Please contact Leonard Campbell at 455-1105 or by email at email@example.com.
