From Clergy Communications

of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati:

Responding to a request from the faithful in the Archdiocese, the Vocation Office joyfully announces the formation of the St. Michael Prayer Warriors. Members of this apostolate agree to pray for at least an hour a month for their parish priests, for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and for vocations to the priesthood. The movement is directed by a monthly newsletter, which is available at http://www.cincinnativocations.org/stmichaelprayerwarriors.php. Information explaining the program in more detail, as well as outlines for how to use the prayer in the parish
and in the home is also included on the page.

In order to introduce the St. Michael Prayer Warriors movement to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, the Vocation Office is hosting the inaugural “Call of the King Conference” on Sunday, September 21, 2008, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., at the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Norwood. Fr. Anthony Brausch of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary will be speaking on personal holiness as an avenue of renewal in the Church. Please publicize this event in your parish, and invite the lay leadership to attend this event with you as well. Please see the bulletin announcement on the BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT SHEET with this edition of Clergy Communications.

Hey now... I work for the Jesuits, all employees of the Jesuits have apparently taken a vow of poverty... I can't afford the gas.

Cincy has to be better in the fall then it was last June when I was there... it was hot and gross....

Cincinnati is lovely now - IN AUGUST. It's been fall like! (I hope that doesn't mean that fall will be August like!)

Gas is going down a bit. Maybe by Sep it could be even down more???

We'll take last minute arrivals!
