This Sunday is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, when the faithful are asked to pray for more vocations, especially to the priesthood and to consecrated life.
Our Diocese will join the Church throughout the world in praying that more men and women generously answer God’s call to vocation.
This weekend, the faithful should pray for the priests, both living and departed, who have ministered to them throughout their lives.
They should seek to encourage their children, grandchildren and other young people to consider a vocation as a priest, religious brother or religious sister, and support them in answering God’s call to those vocations.
At mass this weekend, parishes may invite parishioners to pray a Rosary for Vocations or hold a Holy Hour for Vocations.
On last year’s World Day of Pray for Vocations, Pope Francis called on the faithful to join him in praying for men and women to take up God’s call to vocation in their lives.
