I am very pleased to announce that beginning November 5, the Wednesday evening Holy Hour from 7-8pm, will now be designated as a Holy Hour for Vocations. The rosary will be led by members of the Vocations Committee of our parish as we pray for vocations to holy marriage, consecrated virginity and the single life, priesthood and consecrated life. This has been something I have wanted to establish for quite some time, so I am grateful to the Vocations Committee for taking on this commitment. Please come and join us as we pray for holy vocations. Confessions will continue to be celebrated during the Holy Hour as well.
Most of you will be reading this on Sunday, October 26. As of this morning I have left for my last trip to Maine. I will be with my family until November 6. We will have an early Thanks- giving family dinner together and I will close down our family cottage for the winter. No trips planned back to Maine until mid-March of next year.
In the next two weekends I will share with you the message I gave concerning the update I gave the weekend of October 18-19, on the Debt Elimination Challenge of our parish. This is for your review and reflection, and especially for those who missed my important update.
