The following is a list of services that parishes submitted to The Catholic Witness. Call your parish for the date and time of its Penance Service if you don’t see it listed below.

Bishop Senior’s Vocations Week Letter

As we begin National Vocations Awareness Week, celebrated November 5th-11th, these words remind us that all people have a call, a vocation, from God. Life is a precious gift, given to us by God, and we are here for a reason. The prophets’ words are an affirmation that God invites us to collaborate with Him so that, through us, He can affect the lives of others.
