CHRIST OUR LIGHT CATHOLIC CHURCH
ARCHDIOCESE OF GALVESTON-HOUSTON
CRISTO NUESTRA LUZ IGLESIA CATOLICA
ARCHIDIÓCESIS DE GALVESTON-HOUSTON
On the Feast of Corpus Christi (Vigil Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6) the total offertory in every parish of the archdiocese is dedicated to the support of those studying for the priesthood. For 2021-22, over a million dollars is needed from this collection to support our seminarians studying for the priesthood. To achieve this goal,
Cardinal DiNardo requests that you double the amount of your regular church support for the weekend of June 5-6.
If we all come together in this effort, the needed subsidy will be met by this collection. In gratitude for the incomparable gift of the Holy Eucharist which is inseparably joined to the priesthood, please do your part to help the archdiocese provide priests for the sake of your future by praying daily for vocations and supporting this collection.
