World Priest Day- June 28th

This day is set aside to pray for the sanctification of our priests, so consider sharing the mission of the day with every parishioner- young and old! Include every group at the Church in this effort. Our priests need our prayers. It is also the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so carry over what is happening on that Friday to the weekend masses. .
NEW Website Coming THIS MONTH!

Be on the lookout for the new! It will be more user friendly and have workshops and a web store with books, t-shirts, Vocation Backpacks, children's vestments, and much more! Keep on the lookout for an email announcing its launch!
Ministry Spotlight
Dear Rhonda,

In a recent Vocation Ministry email , you mentioned that you wanted to hear about triumphs and challenges, so I thought that I would write to you.
I wanted to let you know about a club that another parent, Meghan, and I have started, by the grace of God, at Holy Cross Catholic School in Batavia, IL. It is called the St. Paul Vocation Club(SPVC.)
Our purpose is simple; we want to support our diocesan Seminarians through prayer and letter-writing and increase awareness of vocations. 

St. Paul Vocation Club
Keep in Touch
Don’t forget to email me back with your stories of triumph or struggle. I would love to highlight more ministries each month in the Ministry Spotlight! If you have questions, know that I am here to support you in this mission of Building a Culture of Vocations One Parish at a Time! Email me!
As always, know that you are in my prayers. If you think of it, please pray for me, too.
God bless you!
