Fr. Joseph J. Arackal V.C., a Vincentian Missionary Priest from India, will be in our parish on the weekend of July 27 & 28 to participate in our Annual Missionary Cooperation Plan. He will preach at all the Masses on the July 27 & 28 weekend and will make an appeal on behalf of the Vincentian Missions.
The Vincentian Congregation (V.C.), a Missionary Sending Religious Congregation, was founded in Kerala, India, modeled after the Congregation of the Mission founded by St. Vincent de Paul. Members of this flourishing Religious Congregation, all natives of India, are engaged in Mission Work in all parts of India and in Nepal and Sri Lanka and in other parts of the world.
There will be special mission collection on the July 27 & 28 weekend to help the Vincentian Missionaries. We urge you to be very generous in your mission offering since these Missionaries need our help. Please keep Fr. Joseph and all the Vincentian Missionaries and seminarians in your prayers.
Jesus said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
