Bishop's letter

Prayer for Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.

Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.

Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church's needs, through Christ, our Lord.




That young people, especially in Latin America,
follow the example of Mary
and respond to the call of the Lord
to communicate the joy of the Gospel to the world.

Welcome!  Are you new to Resurrection parish?
We would like to welcome you to our parish family. 
In order to better serve you, please fill out a Registration Card
located at the entrances of the church. 
Leave it with an usher or put it in the collection plate. You may also register
