Mass Intention for Sunday, April 19, 2015
Three members of our Confirmation class, Gypsy, Jesus and Armando spent half a day working at Lucky’s Place Animal Shelter for their service project. They walked dogs, spring cleaned kennels (yuck), and did it all with a smile! What a great group again this year!
Today, I am happy to announce the publication of a new Pastoral Letter to the People of God of the Diocese of Cheyenne regarding Marriage, Family and Vocations. The letter is being formatted and prepared for publication as we speak. After the first of the year, the letter will be mailed to every registered household in the diocese.
I share with you today a digital version of the document solely for the purposes of helping your prepare to carry out the mandates of the letter. Primarily, I alert your attention to the following:
* Prayer for vocations at every Mass
* Holy Hour in every parish once a week
* Encourage all to pray the Angelus
* Where possible, churches to restore the practice of ringing the Angelus bells at noon
Those are the primary points, though there are several other broad requests of individuals and families, which I ask you to be aware of and to facilitate as possible.
Fr. Titus will be in touch soon regarding specific tasks we need your assistance in meeting the new priorities that begin January 1.
On this my 5th anniversary as your bishop, I give thanks for each and everyone of you! May God continue to bless us, our ministry and all those we serve!
In The Heart of Christ,
