Vocations Poster Heading 2016

 _________ Take courage; Get up, Jesus is calling you! – Mark 10:49 _________


World Day of Prayer Vocations Logo

This day the Church throughout the world prays for vocations. Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life?
Things to do to help increase vocations:
(1) Pray for the priests who have ministered to you throughout your life, both living and dead.
(2) Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout the week.
(3) Encourage your children, grandchildren, or other young people to consider a vocation as a priest or religious brother or sister.
(4) Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our diocese to respond to God’s call.
