Vocations Awareness and Brian Flynn

Wednesday greetings to all.

This week marks the 24th annual J. S. Paluch Vocations Seminar sponsored by the National Vocations Awareness Division of our company. It is being held here in the O'Hare area. Through the generosity of the Paluch family, leaders in vocations from around the country gather each year for input and discussion.



Have I told you lately that this is a wonderful company for which to work? Our owners, Bill Rafferty and his wife, Mary Lou Paluch Rafferty, are inspirations to me every day. Their dedication to serving the Church through parish communications, bulletin advertising, vocations awareness, beautiful parish calendars, and resources for the singing, praying, and initiating Church is unmatched.



Last evening, one of WLP's new artists and composers, Brian Flynn, presented a one hour concert for those gathered at the vocations seminar. If you haven't had the chance to hear Brian, here's a clip from EWTN's "On the Rock" program. You'll find him singing his piece You Are a Priest Forever at the eleven minute mark on the video. Brian wrote this piece for the Year of the Priest. Enjoy.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

ON YOUR BLOG TWO WEEKS AGO, YOU SHOWED AN IMMAGE OF THE NEW 2011 WE CELEBRATE HYMNAL. DO YOU KNOW IF THE NEW HYMNALS WILL BE SHIPPED TO PARISHES DURING THE FIRST HALF, OR THE SECOND HALF OF SEPTEMBER?

We are targeting the second half of September.
Thanks for following the blog and I know you will love the hymnal.
