    From the Rector’s Desk... I am pleased to report that we have updated and revised our parish website, The weekly televised Mass, until now, only available over the television airwaves, is now available online on the new website, as well. With recent upgrades to the television equipment and cameras and a subscription to VIMEO, we are able to live stream the weekly television Mass in real time at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday evenings. The weekly Mass and previous Mass broadcasts will also now be available for viewing. Also, with the new website, online giving will soon be an option for anyone who would like to give church support or to second collections electronically. Online giving will be available via the website by the end of the calendar year. I encourage you to visit the new website. Seminarian Education Fund – A vocation to the priesthood is an answer to Jesus’ call to participate in His work. Christ is the One who calls. The Diocese of Covington has been blessed to have a number of men who have responded to Christ’s call. These men will need the love and support of the community to complete their journey. Estimated Diocesan cost for providing our seminarians with tuition, books, room and board, health insurance, living allowances and retreats for the coming year will amount to more than $58,000.00 per seminarian. You can help by making an immediate gift to the Seminarian Education Fund. Please pray daily for our seminarians and for an increase in vocations to the priesthood. Fr. Maher
