Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

Happy Easter! He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

Today the Church celebrates Good Shepherd Sunday, as it does every Fourth Sunday of Easter. The readings are very familiar to us and we take great comfort in the loving concern that our Savior Jesus has for us! God ensures that we have shepherds among us to continue to lead us in His name. And that brings us to the second thing that the Church around the world celebrates today. We celebrate World Day of Prayer for Vocations! We need to pray for vocations to the priesthood. We need to make it known to our young men that they should always be open to God’s call to this vocation. As I write this and as you read it, the Bishop and his Priest Personnel Board are making decisions about where to send the newly ordained priests after their ordination on June 2. I am asking everyone to pray daily that the Bishop send us one of the newly ordained priests to serve here at St. Christopher. Pray that the Holy Spirit inspire them to assign a priest who will serve this community with great joy. I am concluding my article this week with a prayer for vocations. I ask everyone to pray this prayer every day of the year. I also ask that you keep your eyes and ears open for some young people who may have a call to priesthood, diaconate or religious life and that you then invite them to think about it!

Prayer for Vocations

God our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that You inspire young people whom you call to priesthood and consecrated life to courageously follow Your will. Send workers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor served with love, the suffering are comforted, and Your people are strengthened by the sacraments.

We ask this though Christ our Lord. AMEN!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
