Prayer for our Priests and Religious

We have so much to be grateful for; our family, friends and our parish. Jesus has been so generous to have given us many priests and religious to help us as we grew to become the people we are today. Now is our time to pray for them and for new men and women to join the ranks of such holy people to continue to be an inspiration to us and our families. We will begin a Novena for Holy Vocations on Friday, December 29, ending on January 7, the Feast Day of the Epiphany. On that day, we will begin to pray for Holy Vocations at the end of every Mass.
