The Diocese of Duluth has made some changes to the 'Priest Calendar' that was included weekly in our bulletin.  They have designed a booklet for us to use each day of each month -- this gives us a chance to pray for current and retired Diocesan Priests, but also those about to be ordained, current seminarians and for future men and women who may be seeking a religious vocation.  Copies are available in the Gathering Space and Adoration Chapel.  You may also click on link below to download or print the booklet in a PDF form.
