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.
Catholic theology and Church law make a very important distinction between material heresy and formal heresy. The 1983 Code of Canon Law offers the following description of formal heresy:
Can. 751 Heresy is the obstinate denial or obstinate doubt after the reception of baptism of some truth which is to be believed by divine and Catholic faith; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Supreme Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.
