We thank the following family for hosting the Vocation Cup this past week: The Pelaez Family / The Tillero Family.
The Vocation Blessing Cup is a wonderful instrument of prayer and devotion for our parish families. The Cup reminds each host family that it is their responsibility to pray for and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life. A family is asked to host the Vocation Cup for one week. It will travel from home to home as a sign of our total parish commitment to praying for vocations.
Seeking Volunteers for the Vocation Cup
Bringing home the vocation cup is a wonderful opportunity to unite any family in prayer, bringing them closer to God and to each other while praying for vocations.
If you and your family would like to volunteer to take home the vocation cup for one week, please fill out the information below and turn it into the rectory office or drop it in the offertory basket.
Thank you for your support!

Dear Brother and Sisters in Christ,
Soon our archdiocese will take up the national Collection for the Church in Latin American. Last year, when Pope Francis opened registrations for World Youth Day in Panama, he said, “WYD is for the courageous! Not for young people who are searching only for comfort and who withdraw whenever difficulties arise. Do you accept the challenge?” (Message for the Thirty-Third World Youth Day, February 11, 2018). Pope Francis echoed Jesus’ call for young people to encounter one another and to experience the beauty of the Church. Young people are the future of our Church. We have a responsibility to support them as they grow in faith.
