St. Joseph Catholic Church

GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY, HOLY HOUR

 “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep or rise night and day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he knows not how” (Mk 4:26-27)

…a Christian does not bear the burden of mission alone, but realizes, even amid weariness and misunderstanding, that “Jesus walks with him, speaks to him, breathes with him, works with him. He senses Jesus alive with him in the midst of the missionary enterprise” (Evangelii Gaudium, 266). Pope Frances

Take time to pray to Our Lord for more Vocations

Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life, both living and dead.

Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week and or give spiritual bouquets.

Pray for our Seminarians who work hard forming their hearts to be like Jesus, the Good Shepherd.

Encourage our children, grandchildren, or other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.

Pray a rosary for more young men and woman in our diocese, our parish, and our families to respond to Gods call.
