A look into a life of vocation for Catholic Schools Week!
National Catholic Schools Week has been celebrated annually throughout the United States for the past 46 years. Recently, at St Joseph School, the theme was VOCATION. The school principal Mr. Eric Frenette invited Father Ivan to visit each class.
Fr. Ivan shared his call to the vocation of Holy Priesthood and discussed other vocations they may be called to.
Father reminded everyone to use their God-given talents to the fullest later in life.
Why do we recite the Rosary on the 13th of Every Month?
The Holy Rosary, also known as the Dominican Rosary refers to a form of prayer used in the Catholic Church and to the string of knots or beads (crown of roses) used to count the component prayers.
One hundred years ago, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three children -- Lucia dos Santos, and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto -- on the 13th of each month from May to October in 1917. Each time she appeared to the children, she encouraged them to pray the rosary every day for peace and to offer sacrifice for those souls who have no one to pray for them.
Father Donald Calloway started "The Thirteen of the Month Club" which is named in honor of the day of the month that Mary chose for her appearances to the children of Fatima. On this day, members pray the Rosary for each other's intentions. Additionally, the Marians residing in Fatima, Portugal offer a special Mass on the 13th of each month for member's intentions.
