World Day of Prayer for Vocations
The World Day of Prayer for Vocations is an opportunity to publicly celebrate vocations to ordained ministry and religious life in all its forms.
“It the joy of simplicity, the joy experienced daily by those who care for what truly matters: faithful closeness to God and to our neighbor. How good it would be if the same atmosphere, simple and radiant, sober and hopeful, were to pervade our seminaries, religious houses and presbyteries! I pray that you will experience this same joy, dear brothers and sisters who have generously made God the dream of your lives, serving him in your brothers and sisters through a fidelity that is a powerful testimony in an age of ephemeral choices and emotions that bring no lasting joy. May Saint Joseph, protector of vocations, accompany you with his fatherly heart!” Click here to read more of the message from Pope Francis

Please pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to God’s call. Resources for promoting vocations can be found on the USCCB and NRVC websites.
