Our three parishes are part of what has come to be called a "cluster" or "linked parish" arrangement.

Ideally, each parish would have at least one priest to serve its people.

In order for this to become a reality once more, we must beg God to knock on the hearts of our young and encourage their response within our families.

Use this prayer in your home to ask God to provide religious for His Holy Church.
