Priesthood Sunday: Oct 2nd

Join us in the gym after all Sunday Masses on October 2nd for a donut and to extend your gratitude to our priests!


“The power of the priest, is the power of the divine person; for the transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world.”

- Saint Bernadine of Siena



What is Priesthood Sunday?

Priesthood Sunday is a special day set aside to honor priesthood in the United States. It is a day to reflect upon and affirm the role of the priesthood in the life of the Church as a central one. This nationwide event is coordinated and sponsored by the US Council of Serra International. The men who answer the call to priesthood are special indeed, and they are working harder than ever before.

Let us take a moment to thank our clergy who follow in Christ’s footsteps. Pray. Say a decade of the rosary for a particular priest or the priesthood as a whole. Drop a note of thanks at the rectory. Find your own meaningful way to encourage these men for their commitment to bringing Jesus to us in so many ways, including the very Eucharist itself.
