This weekend Fr. Lamar will be coming to speak about the Co-Redemptorist Association.
Co-Redemptorists are lay men and women who take an active role in helping to recruit and support young men who choose to pursue religious life as Redemptorist priests and brothers.
In the past 50 years, Co-Redemptorists have helped over 300 men become Redemptorist priests and brothers. Co-Redemptorists close the gap between our costs for educating our seminarians and our resources from past gifts and savings. We suggest that each Co-Redemptorist offer to cover the gap for one seminarian for one day each month. This gap is $15 a day for each seminarian in the program. Co-Redemptorists are currently aiding 88 seminarians to become Redemptorists in three countries: USA, Brazil and Nigeria.
LPi — Liturgical Publications — has some space available in our parish bulletin. These ads are not just for business, but may also be purchased by individuals. They are considered memorial or honorary ads for you, your family, and/or your friends. When an individual purchases such ad space, he is given the option to change the text of the ad four (4) times per year.

One of the significant times the bishop gathers with his priests, deacons, and diocese is at the Chrism Mass. This yearly gathering of the church provides an opportunity for the diocesan community to focus on the Word and the Eucharist, while at the same blessing the oils, which are used in parish ministries throughout the year. The Chrism mass will be held at St. Joseph Cathedral at 10:30 am on Wednesday March 28, 2018. The diocese invites all parishioners to the Chrism Mass.
