President Burns letter for April 2017

photograph of Jim Burns

March was another active month for Serra KCK. We implemented all the activities I mentioned in my March letter to you. Larry Werner did his normal wonderful job of pictorially documenting the Running Revs game which was attended by a number of Serrans who provided all the volunteer needs of the Vocations Office. Fun time was had by all and we raised money for our Seminarian Support Fund and shared half the proceeds with the Serra Club of Johnson County. Thanks to all who made it happen.

Pray with us for Vocations

O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, grant we beseech You, through the intercession of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, St. Joseph her spouse, Saint Junipero Serra and all the saints, an increase in laborers for Your Church, fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls. Through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with God forever and ever. Amen
