Vocation Cross

Posted on October 28, 2015 in: General News

Our parish has begun the Vocation Cross Prayer Ministry. We invite a parish family at each weekend Mass to take home a VOCATION CROSS to display in their home the entire week. The family is asked to gather around the cross each day during the week to offer the vocation prayer which will be included with the cross. Also, families are encouraged to place a candle near the cross and perhaps decorate the space with flowers. The family brings the cross back to church with them the following week when another family will be asked to take the cross home. We encourage all our parish families to pray daily for vocations ... that the Lord will send many holy priests, brothers and sisters to serve His Church.

Diocesan Prayer for Vocations

Heavenly Father, your divine Son taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His vineyard. We earnestly beg you to bless our Diocese and our world with many priests, deacons and religious who will love you fervently and gladly and courageously spend their lives in service to your Son's Church, especially the poor and the needy.

Bless our families and our children, and choose from our homes those whom you desire for this holy work. Teach them to respond generously and keep them ever faithful in following your Son Jesus Christ, that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the inspiration of Saint Damien and Saint Marianne the Good News of redemption may be brought to all.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
