We hear today that Jesus healed a leper. Lepers in those days not only suffered great physical pain, but were exiled by the community. Jesus’ action pierced through many walls of division. How is Jesus calling you to help bring reconciliation to places of division?  If God is calling you to a Church vocation, call Fr. Dan or Fr. Andrew Lauricella at 716-847-5535.

Dear Holy Spirit,

Please help those who hear Your call only as a whisper, that they may know that it is You calling them to service. May You fill those You call with the grace and courage to respond to Your whisper. I will pray, encourage and support those whom You have chosen for priestly and religious vocations.


Please pray for all seminarians, especially Seminarians Bill Papaj.

If you would like to send a letter or encouraging card to Bill Papaj while they are in the Seminary, the address is:
