Traveling Crucifix

Our goal is that each weekend the Crucifix will be presented to a family, at the end of 1 Mass, before the dismissal. The presentation rotates to a different  Mass each weekend.  So one week will be at 4:30, the next at 8:15 etc. 
Please go to the available spots and sign up for your Mass of choice and a week that you, as a family, can pray all week for Vocations to Priesthood, Sisters in religious life, married life and committed single life.  We will start this new ministry on October 14th at the 8:15 Mass and rotate each week from there.click here to take a week
