National Vocation Awareness Week - November 3rd - 9th

A Family Prayer for Vocations


Father, increase our family’s love for one another. May we honor each other in times of happiness or hardship, bearing with one another in love, just as You love us. In a special way, help us strive for holiness in our current states of life. Should You call some of us to the priesthood or religious life, help us to respond with courage and joy. Together, we make heaven our goal and pledge, with Your grace, to help each other on life’s journey to You. Through the intercession of the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
