Film Maker Request

A TCU film maker is calling around to random diocesan parishes seeking permission to film a scene in the sanctuary and confessional. We normally do not approve such requests. Because of circumstances, Msgr. Hart reviewed the request and instructed the following:

As we have no control over the product or its use, permission for shooting a video in the Nave, Sanctuary or anywhere on the grounds of any parishes in the Diocese of Fort Worth, is hereby denied.

 

National Vocations Week

November 5-11, 2017

National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promote vocations. The Vocations Office encourages each parish and school to take part in promoting vocations this week through prayer and activities.

Within Masses during this week, please include one or both of these petitions:

  • For young men discerning priesthood, that God will make His call heard and that men will have the courage to say yes to Christ’s call to “Come, follow me.” Let us pray to the Lord.
  • During National Vocations Awareness Week, we pray for those communities that do not have enough priests, and that more young men will respond to the Church’s need. Let us pray to the Lord.
