NEXT Sunday, October 29th
we will celebrate Priesthood Sunday, a day set aside to celebrate the
importance of the gift of priesthood in the life of the Church and for us to
reflect on the ministry that our priests share with us - when we gather at
the Table of the Lord, and when we call on them in our times of need.
Consider sharing a personal note or a card of thanks with them. We pray that
our young people will be inspired by the ministry and witness of our priests
and that their hearts be open to hearing and responding to Godís call. For
more information on the priesthood see:
is traditionally known as the month of the Rosary. We remind everyone that
every weekday morning we pray the Rosary in Church at 7:00am. We invite you
to join in this devotion. For more information about the Rosary, see Father
we will elect 4 members to the Pastoral Council. Volunteer!
Application forms are available in the Book Room and will be accepted
until October 29th. We invite you to seriously consider
serving on this important council in our Parish.
