May 10, 2017

One of our favorite social events is the Mothers Day brunch taking place next weekend. Will you take the time after the Sunday morning masses (and before the 12:00 pm mass) to celebrate this special day with your mother? Thanks to the Mens Club for supporting our Mothers Day brunch.

The church promotes today as the World Day of Prayer for vocations. We added the official prayer (see below) to our intercessions at all the masses. However, these world day of prayers for various causes are meant to raise our awareness for daily prayer. At the end of the weekend, we'll collect all the prayer cards and make them available to you to use beyond this one day of prayer. Pray for young people to serve this archdiocese, our Franciscan province and the mission fields around the world.

Here is the prayer we used, sent to us by the Archdiocese of Detroit's vocation office:

God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son's Kingdom as priests, deacons, religious, and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit to help us respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community. of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
