Lent 2018

Saturday of the Third Week of Lent


St. Marie Eugenie of Jesus Milleret was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on June 3, 2007. In his homily that day, the pope said, "Marie Eugenie Milleret reminds us first of all of the importance of the Eucharist in the Christian life and in spiritual growth . . . In particular, she realized how important it was to pass on to the young generations, especially young girls, an intellectual, moral and spiritual training that would make them adults capable of taking charge of their family life and of making their contribution to the Church and society."


Do you foster faith formation of the children in your life? Whether you are a parent, have nieces and nephews, or know youth through friends or your church community, can you do more to help pass on the values of your faith?


St. Marie Eugenie was called to the religious life. Today we pray this prayer from the US bishops for increased vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life.

Good and gracious God,
you have called us through Baptism to
discipleship with your Son, Jesus Christ,
and have sent us to bring the Good News of
salvation to all peoples.
We pray you to grant us more priests and
religious to build up your Church here within
the Archdiocese of _________________.
Inspire our young men and women by
the example of Blessed Junipero Serra to give
themselves totally to the work of Christ and
his Church.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.


Consider becoming a catechist in your parish or finding other ways to help develop youth ministry. It's never too late to get involved.
