While leading a fall retreat for the Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, Archdiocese of Portland vocations director Father looked through the 2014 Clergy List, which he found under his plate at lunch. The ACCW prepares an alphabetized, month-by-month list of priests' names, for those who wish to pray for one each day. Father Henderson noticed there were no names in December and suggested that Catholics pray for all seminarians this month.  

The ACCW updated the list for 2014 to include Pope Francis on Dec. 1, Archbishop Alexander Sample on Dec. 2, Baker Bishop Liam Cary on Dec. 3 and an invitation to the faithful to pray for all seminarians Dec. 4-31. The list is available on the ACCW website, home.catholicweb.com/accwpdx/ or, for a printed copy, at the next District Meeting 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, at St. Therese Parish Center, 1260 NE 132nd Ave.
