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.

La Virgen María…

Quiere llegar a todas las Familias de Nuestra Parroquia para darles su Amor, Paz, Consuelo y dejar Entronizado el Corazón de su Hijo.

El Papa Francisco en el Encuentro Mundial de las Familias, en Filadelfia nos dijo: “Que Dios nos conceda a todos, ser profetas del gozo del Evangelio, del Evangelio de la familia, del amor de la familia”. Aprovechemos la Visita de la Virgen para compartir en Familia a través de la Oración del Santo Rosario.
