Year of St. Joseph

For the entire year of St. Joseph our parish will be hosting a traveling Sacred Heart Icon for vocations.  Starting on Sunday March 21st and running until March of 2022, your family can host the Icon at your house for a week to pray for vocations. You would pickup the Icon at the Church after either the Saturday Vigil Mass or after any Sunday Mass.  You would then return the Icon by Friday at 3pm. We ask that while you have the Icon in your home, that you pray specially for vocations.  We will provide a laminated card with a prayer for vocations on it, for you. You may choose more than 1 week if you so wish.

Please click this link to see the dates available and to sign up for your week.  If you have any questions or concerns please email Relbs@kennett.net or simply call the office. (or paste the following into your browser: https://forms.gle/cJHjvk5pcjPXA8nH9)
