Some of our diocesan priests in concert, December 14
Objective: to raise funds for our seminarians
and to promote vocation to the priesthood


Happy New Year to our Beloved Priests!



We thank you for all you do to keep our Church alive
with Jesus' holy presence.

May He fill you with His unfailing love,
especially in the most trying times of your ministry.
May you be filled with His grace and wisdom
as you impart to us the teachings of the Church.
May you be filled with strength and ardor
at those times when inspiration seems to have gone.
May He give you energy beyond your needs
that you may face future challenges with passion.
May you be filled with joy
when the tasks seem so heavy.

We pray to the Father,
who has especially chosen you, yes,
YOU!
May He bless you immensely,
now and always!

We pray in Jesus' name, with Mary,
the Mother of the Most High Priest,
Amen.
