World Day of Prayer will be observed on Sunday, April 22nd, also known as “Good Shepherd Sunday.”  The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord’s instruction to, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2).

Please pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to the Lord’s call to the priesthood, diaconate, religious life, societies of apostolic life or secular institutes. You can find many resources to promote a culture of vocations on the USCCB Vocations webpage (

Priest Question Box:

Why do we not ask people to return the song books back to their place at the end of Mass?

Great question!! Please if everyone would place your song books back in their places.  It would be a great help! Spanish books go in the back on the shelf and English books go into the corners of the pews closest to the aisle!  Please also check the floors and area around you to make sure no bulletins or trash is lying around so as to keep God’s house clean!
