2018 World Day of Prayer for Vocations
Today the Church throughout the world prays for vocations. Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more voca-tions to the priesthood and religious life?
- Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life, both living and dead.
- Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week.
- Encourage your children, grandchildren, or other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.
- Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to respond to God’s call.
2018 Synod on Youth & Vocations
This fall, hundreds of bishops will gather in Rome for a special synod on “Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment.” their purpose is to discuss the ways that young people encounter Jesus in today’s world, and to ensure the Church is helping them to discover their vocations. The synod begins in October.
Join an “Invisible Monastery”
Pledge to pray for vocations at the international website, invisiblemonastery.com. It was inspired by a call from the Vatican urging Catholics to “organize an ‘invisible monastery’ in which many persons, day and night, are committed to continuous prayer for priestly vocations.”
