World Day of Prayer for Vocations: April 17, 2016

Bronx formation

Sunday, April 17, 2016, is the 53rd annual World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

Will you pray for the men in formation with the Redemptorists in the United States and the English-speaking Caribbean?

Please pray the vocation prayer below—and throughout the coming week, offer an Our Father, a Hail Mary, or a decade of the rosary; prayers during Mass; or a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament.

Your prayers will help these men along their journey, as they listen to and respond to God’s call for their lives.

Boston formationPrayer for Vocations

Send forth Your Spirit, Lord,
into the hearts of Your faithful
people, that we may be conscious
of our vocation to holiness and
service to others. Grant that many
of us may dedicate ourselves to
You through the priesthood,
religious life, and lay ministries.
We pray for the needs of our
parish and diocese. Grant that we
may always have sufficient good
and holy priests and deacons,
dedicated sisters and brothers,
and committed lay ministers
to serve our communities.
We pray too for the Redemptorists,
that generous men may join them
to become zealous missionaries,
preaching the Gospel in word
and action to the most abandoned,
especially the poor.
We make this prayer through Jesus
Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
