Vocations Awareness Week
As the church celebrates Vocations Awareness Week Nov. 3-11, supporters will kick off the effort with walks beginning in two locations and ending with Mass at Mission San Xavier. The starting points are Our Mother of Sorrows (1800 S Kolb St.) and St. Margaret Mary (801 N. Grande Ave). Mass will begin at 1 p.m.
Along the way from OMOS, which has a 5 a.m. gathering time and 5:30 a.m. kick off, walkers will pick up walkers at Queen of all Saints (2915 E. 36th St.) at 7:30 a.m. and St. Monica’s (212 W. Medina Road) at 9:45 a.m.
Pilgrims will gather at St. Margaret Mary at 7 a.m., departing at 7:30 p.m., picking up pilgrims at Our Lady of Fatima (1950 W. Irvington Pl.) at 9:30 a.m.
San Xavier was chosen because it is the oldest church building in the Diocese.
