Father Dan Dorsey of the Glenmary Home Missioners will celebrate and speak at the weekend Masses of July 31 & August 1, sharing about Glenmary’s missionary efforts which focus on serving the spiritual and material needs of people right here in the United States. Hundreds of counties in the U.S. do not have a Catholic church or resident priest. This means no celebration of the Eucharist, no sacraments, or a parish community in which to find fellowship and support. Glenmary Home Missioners is working hard to fill that void—to bring the love of Jesus and His Church to the small towns and rural areas of our nation. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn more about Glenmary’s missionary outreach in Appalachia and the rural South. We invite you to share your prayers and financial support for this important ministry. We will have a second collection next weekend. Thank you for your generosity.
