6/7/19 St. Nicholas News - Growing in Faith: Priesthood
Pray for our priests!
The Catholic Priesthood is meant to be a visible and real sign of Christ's continued mission in the life of the Church and world. While priests are men and struggle as everyone does, they are set apart so that they can teach, govern, and sanctify us through the sacraments. They need our prayers and support as they live out this sacred mission.
