Beginning June 22nd, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops celebrates Religious Freedom Week. In the midst of our current faith challenges, please pray for the courage to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church and find strength in hope.
WorldPriest, a lay organization, was formed in 2003 in Ireland to affirm the dignity, beauty and gift of the priesthood of Jesus Christ to humanity. As part of that mission, an Annual Global Rosary Relay for the Sanctification of Priests was started. This year we are asked to pray the rosary for this special intention on Friday, June 26th at 6:30 p.m. in Illinois either with family and friends or in private.
NEXT weekend, June 29/30 there will be a 2nd collection for Peter’s Pence. The purpose of the Peter’s Pence collection is to provide the Holy Father with the financial means to respond to those who are suffering as a result of war, oppression, natural disaster, and disease. Please be as generous as your means allow.
