April 26th: Dinner for Young Women in Discernment
St. Francis de Sales in Lebanon will be hosting a gathering for young women who are discerning a call to the consecrated life. This will be an opportunity to be with Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, to meet young women in one of the varied Consecrated Life options present in the Archdiocese, to meet with other young women considering this call and to meet Vocation Ministers. Further details will be available along with how to register. For now, please save the date.

You have created us for some definite purpose.
Grant us the grace to know the path
You have planned for us in this life
and to respond with a generous “Yes.”
Make our archdiocese, parishes, homes and hearts
fruitful ground for Your gift of vocations.
May our young people respond to Your call
with courage and zeal.
Stir among our men a desire and the strength
to be good and holy priests.
Bless us with consecrated religious and those called to a
chaste single life, permanent deacons,
and faithful husbands and wives,
who are a sign of Christ’s love for His Church.
We commend our prayer for vocations to You, Father,
through the intercession of Mary our Mother,
in the Holy Spirit,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
– Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr
