A Day to Honor Priests/Pastors
Each year, on the third Sunday of October, Worldwide Marriage Encounter(WWME), and I believe Serra International, sponsor World Priest Day. It is a day to honor our priests and let them know how much we value and appreciate their vocation to the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
Our local WWME Community is sending out these cards to the Catholic priests in our deanery, as well as to area Christian pastors to let them know we love them and are praying for them.
This same card design is also being sent to our newly ordained priests in the Rockford Diocese on behalf of the WWME Presenting Team Community for Rockford, Madison/Milwaukee. We have also circulated and filled a prayer scroll for all our priests - and there will be married couples praying together for the 24 hours on October 26th.
Won't you join us by making a special card for YOUR priest or pastor to let them know how much you appreciate their vocation in serving God's flocks? Leave a comment on this post with a link to your card if you decide to join us.
NOTE: I was going to use the Dynamic Duo colors of Handsome Hunter & Sage Shadow - which are beautiful together. But I had a piece of Baja Breeze laying on my table, so I paired that up instead and WOW! I never would have thought those two colors would look so good together - and the Very Vanilla (rather than Whisper White makes a difference too!) Don't be afraid to try different colors together - some of them will stun you with how well they go together for the project you are working on.
