Vocation Message: From among the baptized, God calls some men to serve as priests for the good of the community. Priesthood is essentially a vocation of service, of shepherding the flock of Christ on behalf of the Lord. Are you cut out for that kind of service? Do you think the Lord might be calling you to serve as a priest? Call or write Father Norm Carroll, Diocesan Director of Priestly and Religious Vocations (302-573-3113, firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Check out the Knights of Columbus link under the Ministries heading of the web. All the info is listed and we welcome you to join.

A reminder from Catholic Cemeteries in the Diocese of Wilmington: The church teaches that the dying must be given attention and care to help them live their last moments with dignity and peace. The prayers of their relatives and friends help them prepare to meet God. Once a person has died, their body must be treated with respect and charity, in faith and hope of the Resurrection. The burial of the dead is a corporal work of mercy. Prayer for the dying and dead is a spiritual work of mercy. Preparing for our death and funeral are gifts we give to those we leave behind. The experienced family service staff at our diocesan Catholic cemeteries, Cathedral and All Saints in New Castle County and Gate of Heaven in Sussex County can provide you with the practical advice you need. For more information, visit the web at cathcemde.com or call the cemetery office.
