Sept. Monthly Prayer Intention: That our parishes, animated by a missionary spirit, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen.


Our parish priest, Father Jan, is a Vincentian, and September is Vincentian Month. September 27 is the feast of St. Vincent de Paul, the founder of the Vincentians and the Daughters of Charity. We can remember him by increasing our efforts to serve our masters, the poor. Please look for poor people in our parish and tell Father Jan how we can charitably help them through our finances and our prayers.


Your parish priest,
Father Jan
