KC Bp. Finn – Priesthood Sunday in the Year For Priests

A reader alerted me to this from the upcoming edition of The Catholic Key:

October 25: Priesthood Sunday in the Year For Priests
By Most Rev. Robert W. Finn
Bishop of Kansas City – St. Joseph

We have in our Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph quite a number of fine folks actively engaged as members of the Serra Clubs. Founded under the patronage of Blessed Junipero Serra, the Franciscan Friar who founded the missions in California, these clubs have as their focus the promotion of vocations to the priesthood and Religious life, and the prayerful support of priests, sisters, brothers, and seminarians. Several local Serra clubs meet in different parts of the diocese, and they do so much to encourage our clergy and Religious. Recently in what has become an annual event, Serra and many others, hosted the Priest and Seminarian Appreciation Golf Tournament and dinner. They honored our priests from KCSJ, and our neighbor, the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas. It was clear to all of our priests that these good friends really do care about them.

    Fr. Z., I’m so grateful for the things I’m able to find out on your blog. I’d often be in the dark, if not for your website. As a result of reading about Priesthood Sunday here, we had time to get some prayer cards printed up with our Priest’s names and a special prayer on them. We were able to have them ready to hand out at all the weekend Masses. We included info in our morning announcements and were able to acknowledge Priesthood Sunday and the parishioners had the chance to say thank you to our Priests.
