Other Activities of Interest
 
Pray for Vocations
All are invited to participate in a new prayer initiative in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia - Philly Adoration for Vocations.  Held each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM in Sacred Heart Chapel at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Catholics are invited to spend time before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament praying for vocations and ask Him to bless His Church with many holy vocations.  We encourage everyone to pray that those whom the Lord is calling will have the courage to respond to His invitation. To sign up for a day/time to pray, visit Heedthecall.org/Phillyadores.  For more information, email Phillyadoration@gmail.com.  Specific details will be emailed to all adorers on the Wednesday before the scheduled prayer time.
