Weekly Note From Our Pastor (Parish Bulletin for September 21, 2014)

Greetings!

Earlier this month, Friday, September 12, 2014 marked the 95th anniversary of the death of Servant of God Father Thomas F. Price. Father Price was one of the founders of the American Catholic Foreign Mission Society, commonly known as Maryknoll, and served eastern North Carolina with joy, devotion, and incredible holiness.

Our diocese has submitted for consideration by the Vatican Father Price's name for canonization.

Here is the prayer for Father Price:

Heavenly Father, You so inspired Father Thomas Frederick Price with love for You and zeal for the Gospel that he dedicated his life to serve You and Your Church, first in North Carolina, his home state, and then in the foreign missions. Grant that by his example we may grow in holiness and into a deeper union with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Help us ot be authentic witnesses of the Gospel and proclaim the Holy Name of Jesus throughout the Diocese of Raleigh and to all the people and in all the places we are sent to love and serve.

If it be according to Your Will, glorify Your servant, Father Thomas Frederick Price, by granting the favor I (we) now request through his prayerful intercession (mention your request here). I (we) make this prayer confidently through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Blessings in Christ,
Fr. Rob
