A daily prayer intention is one way we can show our love and appreciation.

Our Vocations Awareness and Appreciation Committee invites us to pray for a priest or deacon each day.
The committee circulates a calendar each month with a list of clergy for whom we can pray.
Suggested prayers are included on the calendar.
We may also offer up:

  • Mass
  • Fasting
  • Eucharistic Exposition
  • Rosary
  • Holy Hour
  • Other Devotions
