On Saturday & Sunday, November 5 & 6, 2016, each one of us has the important opportunity to nominate an individual who may possibly have a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Cards will be available in the church pews at all weekend Masses to make your nomination. Be considering a person whom you would like to nominate!
An important part of our annual Stewardship of Vocations weekend, the "Called By Name" program has been very successful over the years. Quite a few of those individuals nominated have gone on to discern and fulfill their vocations to the priesthood and religious life. For more information, read an article about past vocations fostered at STM.
Please continue to pray often for vocations! "Pray for all men and women who are considering and/or responding to a religious vocation call in their lives," Msgr. Tom encourages us in the Pastor's Note for the November 8 bulletin.
"O God, we earnestly beseech you to bless your Church with many vocations to the holy priesthood and religious life: men and women who will serve you with their whole strength and gladly spend their lives for your Church, to make you known and loved. Amen." (prayer for vocations adapted from Liturgical Publications, Inc.)
