Prayer for Vocations
Loving God, you sent your Spirit on the apostles to continue the mission of your Son, Jesus. We pray that you will now send your Spirit on our bishops, priests, deacons, sisters and brothers, filling them with zeal to evangelize your people.
We pray for all that are presently discerning your call, those in vocational formation and those preparing them. We pray that you bless our diocese with more priests and deacons, and religious congregations with new members.
Mary our Mother and patroness intercede for us that our pastoral needs may be fulfilled through Him who is Lord for ever and ever. Amen.
The Office of Vocation promotion has a special focus on recruitment of candidates for the diocesan priesthood and collaborates with vocation directors of religious congregations for awareness of and recruitment for the consecrated life.
