Father_LaVoie“Those who sense the Lord might be calling them to explore the possibility of becoming a priest or consecrated religious are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Vocations or their parish priests.Even in the very early stages of discernment, such initial discussions have proven helpful to many. May Christ bless you and our Blessed Mother lead you closer to her Son.”

Diocesan Vocation Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We ask you to bless our diocese with selfless hearts that are willing to serve You, by serving Your Church. Lord Jesus raise up from our homes those called by the Father:  courageous and humble men to the Priesthood, faithful people to Consecrated Life and holy men and women to the sacrament of Marriage.

Holy Spirit, help us to live our universal vocation to holiness, by listening to the Father’s voice and responding with a sacrificial love.

Holy Mary, Model of Vocations, teach us to hear and follow your Son.

Holy Mary, Queen of Priests, sanctify our priests and obtain for us many more.

Holy Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for our families and intercede for our children.
