Our Patron Saint ~ Junipero Serra

Not only because of his place in American history as the founder of a chain of missions in Mexico and California, but also because of his life of priestly zeal and heroic virtue, Fray Junípero Serra, OFM, was chosen as the patron of our apostolate. This gifted Franciscan friar had occupied the Duns Scotus chair of philosophy in Mallorca, Spain, until he felt the call to commit himself further to the service of Christ as a missionary in the New World. Departing from Cadiz, Spain, in 1748, he made the perilous crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a small ship, landing at Veracruz on the southern shore of the Gulf of Mexico. From there, he journeyed on foot to Mexico City, where tradition has it that he prayed at the church built over the famous site where the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531.

How do we help our children to look past the distractions to find peace as teens and young adults so that they ultimately find happiness in the vocation for which God lovingly created them?

This engaging series of talks is specifically crafted for parents seeking to nurture a level of spiritual peace in their children that will enable them to hear God’s “quiet voice” in this noisy world.

The series will be led by Deacon Patrick and LuAnn Simons who will share their experience with their four adult children and provide practical tips that will help you lead your children to true happiness as teens and young adults. Deacon and LuAnn are the founders of the Catholic Apostolate, www.aholylife.org. For free childcare, please email maxsonl@svdpomaha.org. Sponsored by the SVdP Vocations Committee, SVdP Knights of Columbus, and the Archdiocese of Omaha Vocations Office.
