Public is invited to Aug. 4 Mass, adoration to mark Day of Prayer for Priestly Vocations

To mark the observance of a Day of Prayer for Priestly Vocations and the feast of St. John Vianney, patron saint of priests, a Mass will be celebrated at noon on Aug. 4 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis. The public is invited.

Father Michael Keucher, archdiocesan director of vocations, will be the principal celebrant, and Father Paul Landwerlen, the archdiocese’s oldest active priest at 94, will deliver the homily.

A relic of St. John Vianney will be present. After Mass, adoration will be offered at the cathedral until 4:30 p.m. Solemn Vespers will follow.

All who wish to pray for priestly vocations and for the priests currently serving in the archdiocese are welcome to attend. †
