Pray for Vocations

2016 Marks the 53rd Anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations
World Day of Prayer for Vocations is observed on Sunday, April 17th, also known as “Good Shepherd Sunday.” The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord’s instruction to, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His harvest” (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). Please pray that young men and women hear and respond generously to the Lord’s call to the priesthood, diaconate, religious life, societies of apostolic life or secular institutes.
