Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This week in Matthew’s Gospel we hear the call of the first disciples to follow Jesus. Simon, Andrew, James and John, leave behind their fishing nets and begin their training as fishers of men. It is a great blessing that we take time to pray for vocations before the beginning of every Mass. Our prayers have been answered and we eagerly await Deacon Joshua Cavender’s ordination to the priesthood in June of this year. While we celebrate the gift of Josh’s vocation, we must never stop praying for men and women to answer God’s call to faithful service in the Church. May all of us remain committed, with God’s grace, to remain faithful in our own vocations.
Peace, Fr. Steve
