Closing Vespers—Year of Prayer
All are invited to attend the Closing Vespers for the Year of Prayer for Priestly Vocations on Sunday, November 25, 2018, the Feast of Christ the King, at 3:00 pm in the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington. Bishop Foys opened the Year of Prayer for Priestly Vocations last year on the Feast of Christ the King to encourage all the faithful of the Diocese to actively pray, both privately and as a community, for those men who are currently in formation for the priesthood and for those men in our diocese whom the Lord is calling to the priesthood. Please consider joining Bishop Foys and the priests, deacons, and lay faithful of the Diocese for this momentous occasion as we give thanks for the graces of this past year and continue to pray for priestly vocations in our diocese. A reception will follow vespers in Bishop Howard Memorial Auditorium.
For the month of November the Food Pantry needs canned fruit. Please be generous.
Please make sure you read your November bulletin to keep your Virtus status current. Thank you to all who work to create a safe environment in our Parish.
As we come to the end of the Liturgical Year, the focus of our readings is the end of the world—an event which is intended to raise terror in the hearts of the unjust and the unfaithful, but joy and consolation in the hearts of faithful Jews and Christians. Both Mark and Daniel are writing to persecuted communities. They seek to offer them hope in a time of great suffering. God and Jesus will bring them safely home, giving them new life that will last forever. In the second reading, the author contrasts Christ’s single offering to the daily sacrifices offered by the temple priests.
