“Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus: we no longer say that we are “disciples” and “missionaries,” but rather that we are always “missionary disciples” (Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium #120).

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Pope Francis has said that our greatest poverty is isolation and our greatest sin is indifference. "Dear brothers and sisters, how greatly I desire that all those places where the Church is present, especially our parishes and our communities, may become islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference!” Pope Francis, Oct.

For all young men interested in attending this Saturday's Vocation Day, the meeting place has changed. Due to the ordination of the Mercado twins, all those wishing to attend Vocation Day are asked to meet at the San Agustín Cathedral at 10:00 a.m. instead of Casa Guadalupe. This is a beautiful opportunity to gain a glimpse at one of the pivitol steps in a young man's vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Please read below for the details concerning Vocation Day and the Ordination. To register, call 956-7272140 or email Fr.
