Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord
(a Holy Day of Obligation)
Thursday, May 30, 2019
Mass Times: 9AM, 12:10 PM & 7PM
At the end of His earthly life, Jesus ascends triumphantly into heaven. The Church acclaims Him in His holy humanity, invited to sit on the Father's right hand and to share His glory. But Christ's Ascension is the pledge of our own.

Sunday, May 12, 2019 marks the 56th Anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Please join us in prayer for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life, and for more faithful marriages.
The purpose of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations is to publically fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). As a climax to a prayer that is continually offered throughout the Church, it affirms the primacy of faith and grace in all that concerns vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated life. While appreciating all vocations, the Church concentrates its attention this day on vocations to the ordained ministries (priesthood and diaconate), to the Religious life in all its forms (male and female, contemplative and apostolic), to societies of apostolic life, to secular institutes in their diversity of services and membership, and to the missionary life, in the particular sense of mission "ad gentes".
