Holy Hour for Vocations with Bishop Burbidge

Join Bishop Burbidge on April 27 for a special Holy Hour for Vocations!  The Holy Hour will start at 7:30pm followed by a light reception in the Parish Life Center.  When considering their vocation, most people immediately think the word only refers to a call to the priesthood or the religious life, despite the fact that Holy Matrimony and the dedicated single life are also vocations.

Here is a list of some of the possible vocations that God might be asking you to consider:

  • Holy Matrimony
  • Diocesan Priesthood
  • Permanent Diaconate
  • Religious Life for men or for women
  • Single men and women who have dedicated themselves to Christ in the service of the Church

Come join us April 27 to support prayerfully those who are discerning or already discerned their vocations, or if you yourself are discerning your own calling!

Warning about an Email Scam Involving Itunes

A number of parishioners have reported receiving emails claiming to be from Fr. Mosimann or Fr. Holmes asking for iTunes gift cards.  These emails are fake and not sent out from our priests! Please disregard any email sent asking for gift cards or money from any individual in the parish.
