Stewardship of Vocations
Dear St. Catherine Parish Family,

This past weekend, as part of our Stewardship as a Way of Life program, we focussed on Stewardship of Vocations, and in my homily, I highlighted some of the resources we have available in and outside of our parish to help support priestly and religious vocations and vocations to marriage. I have included several links to these and other resources below.

Additionally, if you know someone who you think may have a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, consider speaking to them about their vocation. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to be asked to consider a vocation. Or feel free to send me their name and contact info, and I will reach out to them.

Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Neil
