April 25th is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations!

Please pray for our priests, deacons, and religious. Pray for those discerning vocations to the priesthood and religious life—that they will prayerfully and lovingly answer God’s call to serve His people.

Prayer for Vocations
GOD OUR FATHER, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as priests, deacons and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit to help others to respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth and young adults. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
