    (Good Shepherd Sunday)
    The Church throughout the world prays for vocations. Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life? Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life. Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week. Encourage your children, grandchildren, or other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister. Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to respond to God's call.

    "Lord Jesus, Good Shepherd, may young people in our parish hear your call and follow your voice as they discern their vocation. Lead your people to heaven through the ministry of holy priests and consecrated men and women. Jesus, we trust in you! Amen."

    Bishop Larry needs our help:
    "The mission given to us by Jesus is a very challenging one. While society values what one owns, our faith values how we use it. We are called to be both wise and generous with the valuable resources of our time, talent and treasure. I am grateful for your continuous financial support of the Diocese and our various ministries – which in turn support your parishes, clergy, staff, and most of all, your youth and those in need." For your convenience, look for the Bishop's Circle donation envelopes at our Welcome Table. Let's help Bishop Larry meet his goal. Read more.

     
    All our parish youth, 1st grade through high school, are invited to participate in our youth minitries. For 1st grade through 8th levels, visit our religious education website for all the details.

    Finding Hope in the Cross
    Do you ever think about how you experience the cross of Jesus Christ? Do you ever think about the power of that cross in your daily life? Is the cross even relevant to your life? It is to stewards of the Lord, who recognize the hope Christ brings through the gift of his cross. They acknowledge that for them, the cross is their only hope. Being good stewards of our life in Christ is not easy, but to embrace the cross is not only countercultural, it seems absurd. Then again, we cannot avoid what Jesus said to his disciples: “If you wish to come after me you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow me. For if you wish to save your life, you will lose it; but if you lose your life for my sake you will save it” (Luke 9:23-24).
