You can become a member of this club by committing to attend one extra Mass a month for vocations. You offer this Mass for priest and religious who have served our parish in the past, those serving now, and that the Lord will call future vocations from this parish family. You may attend Mass anywhere, but your intentions should be for the priests and religious of our parish and for vocations from our parish family. For more information contact Rosey Wilson.
