FROM THE VOCATIONS COMMITTEE....
Deacon Paul and Sharon attended the 9th Annual Diocesan Vocations Benefit Dinner at Good Shepherd Church in Elk Grove on 6/18/22. Hosted by the local Knights of Columbus chapter, they chatted with current seminarians including Brendan Condon and Ivan Franco who are staying with Father Eduino this summer. Check out the photos that include Bishop Soto, Ivan, and Benjamin!
Please continue to pray for vocations (ordained, consecrated, married, and single life) so that our Catholic Church worldwide thrives and is nurtured, and especially pray for those in our OLA community to hear God’s gentle whispers and to respond.
