My last evening in California was blest by being with the Carmelites in Los Angeles for dinner. They invited the Legionaries for dinner, as they serve them regularly. Thank you Sisters for your vocations!

Action at the Parish

Consecration to Saint Joseph

We are beginning a discussion group which will follow Fr. Donald Calloway's book Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father for 33 days. Our first day was Sunday, April 11th and it is not too late to begin and catch-up. You will need to get the book. My book is on my kindle, but Lisa Piratzky can get a book for you from In His Name Catholic Book Store here in Raleigh. You can call the store and ask for Lisa. 

We had a brief meeting this past Sunday kicking off our discussion group. The next meeting is in St. Monica Hall on Thursday, April 15, 2021 @ 7:00 PM. You can join us there, and we are also offering a Zoom option at the same time on the same date. We will Zoom you right into our meeting in St. Monica Hall. If you want to do the Zoom option, reply to this email, or send a separate email to [email protected] and I'll make sure you receive the Zoom link. 

God bless you and keep you. And may you enjoy this journey with St. Joseph in the Year of St. Joseph!
