Clergy Convocation: Pray for Them

Our Clergy will be attending their Annual Clergy Convocation from January 22 - January 25th.

Clergy Convocation is the gathering of our diocesan bishops, priests and deacons. This provides an opportunity for our clergy to gather and discuss church matters.

Please keep them in your prayer!

Movie Recommendation: Cabrini

"Cabrini" tells the story of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the Patron Saint of Immigrants.

Cabrini is based on the true story of one woman’s fight for the equality, health and happiness of immigrant orphans. Cabrini uses her entrepreneurial mind to build an empire of hope unlike anything the world had ever seen.

It's coming to theaters on March 8th! Tickets are now available for pre-sale for $5 each.
