WELCOMING FR. PAT DAVIS
Fr. Pat Davis, a member of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), is spending part of his summer with us while our pastor, Fr. Matthew, is away on vacation. Fr. Pat is an old friend to parishes in the Archdiocese of Seattle, visiting here regularly for over 20 years. He has taught pastoral counseling at the Irish National Seminary in Maynooth, and ministers to families in both Belfast and outside Dublin. We are grateful to have Fr. Pat with us again this year!

HOLY HOURS FOR FOR VOCATIONS
Archbishop Sartain blessed a special “Monstrance for Vocations” at the Chrism Mass during Holy Week 2013. The Monstrance is traveling throughout the Archdiocese over a six year period, visiting every parish and mission to facilitate prayer for vocations particularly to the priesthood and religious life, and including vocations to sacramental marriage and the promotion of the primary vocation to live out the holiness of our baptism. In the first two years of the program the Monstrance has toured the Southern and South Sound Deaneries, and nearly all of the parishes in Pierce County.
The Monstrance for Vocations is at Holy Disciples for three weeks. The Monstrance will be used during our regularly scheduled Holy Hour which follows Mass on Wednesday mornings June 24 - July 8. Please pray that people throughout the Archdiocese, especially the young people, will take time to listen deeply to the voice of God as they ponder what their futures might hold.

UPDATE: ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL
Thank you for your support of Archbishop Sartain’s Annual Catholic Appeal which provides funding for over 60 important of ministries within the Archdiocese of Seattle.
Each year the Diocese sets a particular goal for each parish and returns to the parish any money raised over and above the goal.
As of July 2nd, 270 parish households (32% of our parish) have pledged $71,890 to the Appeal (98% of our goal amount). We need only $1,591 to meet our goal of $73,481!
Please continue to pray for the success of this Diocesan Campaign and be generous in your support. Click on the Annual Catholic Appeal button to donate online.
