PRAY FOR OUR SEMINARIANS

Please pray for our seminarians: Deacon Justin Ward, Daniel Sessions, Charles Deering, Doug Hess, Luis Reyes, Matthew Gubenski, Cristian Padilla, Patrick DePew, and Max Gallegos. Pray for those who are discerning a call to the priesthood.

THE FRANCISCAN FRIARS

The Franciscan Friars have relocated to Our Lady of Fatima’s convent, 44 16th Avenue South, which affords them much more room to store materials for their mission. Later this year, perhaps in July, sisters of the same order will occupy the house just west of our rectory.
