Familiar faces at Mass: Look for some familiar faces at Masses next weekend, June 16 - 17. Seminarians Michael Bower, James Baxter Jr., and Christian DeCarlo have been in and around the parish during brief moments home after another academic term away at seminary. On Sunday, June 17, they will share their seminarian experience during the Masses and talk about the Seminarian Appeal which will be the second collection for that weekend.

Second Collection: June 16 - 17, Seminarian Appeal
Ordination Anniversaries: Saint Alphonsus Liguori Parish is blessed to have three resident priests to help serve the growing community here. The parish would like to congratulate Father Roberts and Father Hasser, who will both celebrate their 5th anniversary in the priesthood on June 16. Both Father Roberts and Father Hasser were ordained on June 16, 2007 at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Lafayette. Be sure to congratulate them during this special time and keep them, and all priests, in your prayers.
Vocations Wall: Take a moment before Mass to check out the parish's "Vocations Wall" standing in the center of the narthex this month. The wall recognizes individuals serving a religious vocation from the diocese, from the parish, as well as relatives and close friends of parishioners. The wall features the names, titles, and location of where the religious individuals are living out their consecrated life. Thank you to all parishioners who helped build the wall by submitting information throughout last month.
Meet the Vocations Office: With so much happening regarding vocations this month ... let's take a quick second to introduce you to the Office of Vocations for the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. Father Hasser, Director for Vocations, helps meet the needs of those discerning religious vocations while also promoting and supporting vocational formation throughout the entire diocese. Stop by his office, located here at the parish, to visit or find more information. Also, check out the Office of Vocations website to learn more about online resources.
