During Lent, St. Mary's Church will have wooden blocks available in both the church and chapel on which you are invited to write an intention, concern, or simply a name and then place it in the framed cross. We need Jesus, we cannot do it on our own. Let Jesus help you to bear your cross.

We are blessed to have such wonderful role models for our students; specifically Fr. Luke and Fr. Bryan, who spoke at the opening of our 2023 Career Fair. They each shared about their path to the priesthood, and how important it is to listen to God's call in our lives. A prayer for vocations: God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son's Kingdom as priests, deacons, and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit to help others to respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth and young adults.
