Saturday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m. ~ Cathedral of St. Peter

Bishop Michael McGovern has called The Reverend Mr. Thomas Richard Lugge to be ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ. All parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend. In the days ahead, please pray for Deacon Lugge, by the Grace of God and the Power of the Holy Spirit. Please also continue to pray that young men and women from our parishes will hear and answer God’s call to vocations to the Priesthood and Religious life.


“The Catholic Church has a long history of service to those who are most vulnerable and remains the largest private provider of social services in the United States. Through the sacrificial efforts of faithful Catholics, the Church serves millions through diocesan ministries and agencies, Catholic hospitals and healthcare systems, immigration clinics, shelters, and Catholic schools and parishes. From religious communities to pregnancy care centers, from refugee resettlement services to foster care and adoption agencies, and from maternity homes to parish-based ministries, the Church consistently bears witness in word and deed to the beauty and dignity of every human life—including both mother and child.”

USCCB Committee Chairmen, “Standing with Moms in Need”
