Year of Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood

How can you help?

Encourage young men to consider a spiritual life of ministry and prayer. They will help shepherd the faithful through the joy-filled celebration of the sacraments, worship, charitable works and building the body of Christ. Come Holy Spirit!

“These efforts to promote vocations to the priesthood are important but most important is prayer.  This Year of Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood reminds us of Jesus’ urgent call:  “ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest”.  His call is addressed to individuals, families, parishes, Catholic schools, and other faith communities in our diocese.  Our first duty is to keep alive this appeal for unceasing prayer for vocations to the priesthood.  I ask our parishes to offer Holy Hours, Eucharistic Adoration and Marian devotions.  I ask our families to pray together, pray with the Scriptures, pray the Rosary, pray at mealtimes, bedtime, special moments and during the liturgical seasons.”
