The Religious Education program is beginning a new initiative, “Penny a Prayer for Priests”.  They have an empty water jug which students will be encouraged to drop in a penny and as they do so they are to say a prayer for vocations, or a particular priest, deacon or religious.  It is a way we can continue to promote vocation awareness in our community.  It is not so much a fundraising tool or goal, but rather encouraging our young people to pray for vocations. Who knows it might encourage one of them to listen more closely to the Lord’s call!  The funds collected at end of year will be sent to the Vocations Office of the Diocese.  Also as we see the jug fill up it will serve as a reminder of how many prayers our young people and our entire community has said for vocations!

For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
