5 Notes & Thoughts Vocation Cup We thank the following families for hosting the Vocation Cup this past week: The Padron Family The Aneiros Family The Vocation Blessing Cup is a wonderful instrument of prayer and devotion for our parish families. The Cup reminds each host family that it is their responsibility to pray for and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life. A family is asked to host the Vocation Cup for one week. It will travel from home to home as a sign of our total parish commitment to praying for vocations. CATECHISTS AND ASSISTANTS NEEDED- NECESITAMOS CATEQUISTAS Y ASSISTENTES DE CATEQUISTAS Many times we ask ourselves, What can I do to help change the World? One thing you can do is help children to know and love the Lord. You do not need a degree in Theology to help them learn about God. All you need is to share your Love for God and want to serve others to grow yourself personally and spiritually in the process of teaching the Word of God. This is a golden opportunity to help our parish s children who are seeking to learn about God. Please stand up and say HERE I AM, LORD since HE is the one calling YOU!

Respect Life Ministry "I know well that it is hard, and sometimes even appears to be impossible to forgive, but it is the only way, because all revenge and all violence give rise to further revenge and violence. It is certainly less difficult to forgive when one is aware that God never tires of loving and forgiving us."
