Ride for Vocations volunteers are needed! On Saturday, October 1st, St. Cecilia’s will be the 50-mile rest stop for the riders who are participating in the Ride for Vocations. We are in need of volunteers to help set up and break down the stop, refill snack tables, and joyfully cheer on riders who come through. All are welcome to help, including families. We do ask that minors have a guardian present at all times during the event. If you cannot help with the rest stop but would like to get involved, we are looking for monetary donations to purchase snacks and drinks for the rest stop. If you would like to participate, contact Liz Jenkins at 240-808-3581 or by email at Please remember to pray for all our priests, seminarians, and those training for this event!
