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.
