Tomorrow is the day set aside this year to celebrate and extend our thanks and prayers to the priests who serve our Archdiocese in so many ways – in our parishes, as chaplains in prisons, hospitals, the Port of Houston, and as military chaplains. We invite you to give the priests you know a simple thank you on this day, or offer a spiritual bouquet (the offering of rosaries, Masses or Holy Hours). Please pray for vocations and for all priests on this day. For more ideas and suggestions visit http://www.priestsunday.org/.
