Announced today from the Vocation Office: By the by, this month features Fr. Martin Fox of Bonfire of the Vanities.
Dear Prayer Warriors,
The end of February and the start of Lent is upon us already!
The March St. Michael Prayer Warriors Newsletter is now posted online: http://cincinnativocations.org/prayerwarriors.shtml or directly here: http://cincinnativocations.org/pdf/March2009color.pdf
Our next conference will be held at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on Sunday, April 26th, 2009, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. Fr. Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh, Dean of Formation at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, will delivering the Key note address. Again, Adoration precedes the conference from 6:00 – 6:45 for those who are interested.
Things here in the Vocation Office continue to be very busy. We had a very successful ‘Cast Your Nets’ youth event this past Sunday, with well over 200 teens gathered in praise and worship of Our Lord and a fantastic presentation by Mother Seraphina of the Franciscan Daughters of Mary, who are based in Covington, Kentucky.
Looking towards the future, please pray for the men who are applying for entrance to the seminary this fall. There are two weekend events coming up for those who are interested in entering the seminary this fall: Welcome Weekend at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary on March 13 and 14 and Live-In Weekend at the Pontifical College Josephinum on April 16-18. Please keep the men who are attending these events in your prayers as well.
May you all have a Blessed and Holy Season of Lent and come to a experience the joy of Easter in an ever deeper way.
