President’s Message:

Liz Rios-Carl



July was a busy month with the installation of our new Bishop. I’m looking forward to having Bishop Seitz as our guest speaker at our regular monthly meeting.


Our speaker for August will be Father Gonzalez from Sacred Heart Church. Please plan on arriving by 11:15 to our meeting so we can have our Holy Half Hour.


Please start thinking of possible candidates for our annual appeal. Our goal is to mail the appeal letter by October 16, 2013. We need every member to participate; our funds are low and we have 13 seminaries to support.


We need to continue to work on our mission to promote and affirm vocations to the priest hood of religious life.


Your’s in Christ!

Liz Carl





Special Vocation Prayer


“Loving Father, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, Queen of Vocations, may our youth joyfully respond to your call to follow Jesus in the priestly religious life.”
