Heavenly Father, Lord of the harvest,
call forth vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life
from our diocese and our families.
Inspire men to imitate Christ the Eternal High Priest
in sacrificial service to Your Church.
Move the hearts of men and women
to offer themselves wholly to You
in poverty, chastity, and obedience.
Send them as laborers for Your harvest.
Inspire the faithful to support them with prayer and sacrifice.
Raise up holy families who foster openness to Your call.
We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
Mary Immaculate, pray for us
St. Thomas More, pray for us
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.
