Celebrate Priesthood Sunday


Priesthood Sunday, the last Sunday of October, is a special day set aside to honor the priesthood in the United States. This year the day falls on October 28, 2018.  It is a day to reflect upon and affirm the role of the priesthood in the life of the Church as a central one

Do not wait until a priest retires or is transferred to celebrate their service. Like Father’s Day, let Priesthood Sunday be the one day a year when we make it a point to make priests feel truly appreciated and special.


Ways you can help support our priests:

  • Choose a name of a priest out of the basket in the church vestibules or the Serra Center.

  • Carry the name with you so you remember to pray for your priest.

  • Choose a special time (alone or with family & friends) to pray for him.


Be Led by the Holy Spirit!

Gracious and loving God,

we thank you for the gift of our priests.

Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments.

                        Help Fr. ______, and all priests

                        to be strong in their vocation.

                        Set their souls on fire with love for your people.

Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength

                        they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

                        Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom.

                        Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel.

                        Allow them to experience joy in their ministry.

                        Help them to become instruments of your divine grace.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,

                        who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest. Amen
