Vocations Crucifix Program
The Vocations Crucifix program is a wonderful means of fostering prayer and devotion among our parish families, the seed beds of vocations. The Crucifix reminds each host family that they share in the responsibility to pray for and encourage vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, consecrated life and marriage. The purpose of the Vocations Crucifix is to provide a focal point of prayer for each family member to gather each evening and pray for their children's vocations. Please call the Parish Office to sign up and take the Crucifix home for a week.
Eternal rest grant unto them...
When Nebuchadnezzar attempted to execute three Jewish boys whom he had renamed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego by burning them to death "the three, as with one mouth, praised and glorified and blessed God in the furnace, saying:
"Blessed art thou, O Lord, God of our fathers, and to be
praised and highly exalted for ever;
And blessed is thy glorious, holy name and to be highly praised and highly exalted for ever;
Blessed art thou in the temple of thy holy glory and to be extolled and highly glorified for ever.
Blessed art thou, who sittest upon cherubim and lookest upon the deeps, and to be praised and highly exalted for ever.
Blessed art thou upon the throne of thy kingdom and to be extolled and highly exalted for ever.
Blessed art thou in the firmament of heaven and to be sung and glorified for ever."
