Monday begins the new school year for those students who attend public school. A special word of welcome to you! Also, to the parents and teachers of these children, a blessing to all of you, as a new academic semester begins. May it be filled with the richness of God’s blessings! I’m also aware that some of our recent high school grads will be off to university and colleges away from home. We also offer blessings for them as they prepare for a new kind of adventure.
The Campus Ministry student leadership team will be on retreat this week, along with Mona and Sal. Please keep them in prayer as they plan, pray and prepare for a new semester.
All of our seminarians are also heading off to seminary. We have a total of 6 seminarians, so far. They are: Gino Wilcox, Ivan Torres, Jeffrey Jasek, Frankie Rios, Patrick Montgomery and Francis Gyau. We have a few more men who are actively discerning the possibility of a priestly vocation. Thanks to all of you who have already made a pledge to our United in Ministry appeal this year and for those who have not already made one, please consider making a pledge in the name of our seminarians.
