As you all are aware, for many years St Peter Parish has been praying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. This coming Saturday, May 21, 2016, one of our own, Joshua Cavender, will be ordained a transitional deacon for the Diocese of Harrisburg. Josh has been studying at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary for the last few years. Through prayer and perseverance he has reached this important milestone on the way to his priesthood ordination in June of 2017.
Next Sunday, May 22, Josh will be the homilist at the 11:00 AM Mass. Please consider coming to support Josh as he preaches for the first time as an ordained minister of the Church. We are very proud of Josh, and wish him many blessings as he begins his diaconal ministry. I ask you to please keep Josh and his classmates in your prayers as well as the five men who will be ordained priests on June 4th.
