Last weekend Mary Ellen, from CARA (Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate) gave two presentations (on Saturday to the parish leadership and Sunday to the parish at large). Her report was very positive and affirming for our faith community. In the next several weeks we will be sharing this good news; it will be posted on the parish website and in other creative ways! Special thanks to the parish pastoral council for your work and to Scott Witt, who worked closely with Mary Ellen over the last several months.
Please keep the university students in prayer as they attend the Aggie Awakening retreat this weekend. As you might imagine, this is a wonderful and powerful encounter with the Lord and can be life changing.
Also, if you can pray for the men that will be attending the Diocesan Vocation Discernment next weekend at the San Patricio Retreat Center, your prayers are very powerful! This retreat has been very successful in the last several years, especially for the men who are attending NMSU and considering a vocation to the priesthood.
