This week at St. Patrick
“The laity, however, are given this special vocation: to make the Church present and fruitful in those places and circumstances where it is only through them that she can become the salt of the earth.”
The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium)
Lay individuals, paid or volunteer, who exemplify the spirit of Christ as explained by the documents of the Second Vatican Council. (“You are the light of the world… your light must shine in the sight of all, so that, seeing your good works, they may give the praise to your Father in heaven” Mt 5:14, 16). The lay person(s) should be someone who lives his or her baptismal call in an extraordinary way through stewardship and leadership. This may include service in direct parish ministry, but can also include Christian service to the greater community.
Congratulations to our award recipients, Margaret and Ron Herrman! Please keep Margaret and Ron in your prayers during this difficult time. St. Peregrine, pray for us!
Bishop Vásquez will ordain Deacons Enrique Sada-Coeto and Callan Sweeney to the priesthood of Jesus Christ.
