Vocation Awareness Week: Prayer and Resources
This week, January 9-15, the Catholic Church in the United States is celebrating National Vocation Awareness Week.
Vocations week celebrates vocations to the priesthood, diaconate or consecrated life in particular. During these days families and the parish community are urged to nurture the faith of their children to prepare them to respond to whatever God’s call is for them.
Prayer for Vocations
Heavenly Father, bless our diocese with the grace of many vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Through the intercession of the Blessed Mother, grant to those You have called the willingness and generosity of spirit to give themselves in devoting their lives and their talents to the service of our Lord and to His Church. Increase the faith of all within our diocese, and particularly the faith of those You have called and will continue to call. We ask this through Christ, Your Son. Amen.
