Spirituality / Vocations

  • Prayer for Vocations

    "Father you call each one of us by
    name and ask us to follow you.

    Bless your church by raising
    up dedicated and generous
    leaders from our families
    and friends who will serve
    your people as Sisters, Priests,
    Brothers, Deacons, and Lay Ministers.

    Inspire us as we grow to
    know you, and open our hearts
    to hear your call.

    We ask this in Jesus name.  Amen."
