Regret no bulletin next week. Editor.

Thought for the week.

Be careful in the way we live our daily faith – it might be the only bible some people will ever read. Hajja Salesjana June ’15.

Year of Consecrated Life

God our Creator and Guide, You call us out of darkness into Your wonderful Light, making us a Royal Priesthood, a Holy People, set apart to sing Your praises.

May our families and parishes continue to nourish the seeds of vocation to the Consecrated Life and the Priesthood.

And may all who have already responded to this call, like Mary, live with openness of heart, to treasure Your presence, to ponder You actions so that all may joyfully proclaim Your goodness now and always. Amen.
