World Day of Prayer for Vocations
Today 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?
Sunday Pew Collection
(Approximately $15,000 a week is needed to cover
operating expenses for the parish.)
Sunday Visa Charges Jan $10,415
Pray for the priest who have ministered to you
throughout your life, both living and dead.
Keep our parish priests in your prayers throughout
Encourage your children, grandchildren, or other
young people to consider a vocation as a priest or
religious brother or sister.
Pray a rosary for more young men and women in our
diocese to respond to God’s call.
Join an “Invisible Monastery”
Pledge to pray for vocation at the international website,
invisiblemonastery.com. It was inspired by a call from
Rome urging Catholics to “organize and ‘invisible
monastery’ in which many persons, day and night, are
committed to continuous prayer for priestly vocations.”
