st. therese vocation society


    The St. Therese Society is a group of men and women who pray for vocations and for the individuals in formation as priests and religious in our diocese. The Society gives these men and women who have responded to God’s call the knowledge that hundreds of their brothers and sisters in Christ are praying for them. Members of the society receive a calendar in the mail several times a year that lists someone in formation to pray for each day. There are no dues or meetings - only the promise of your prayers.

    Children are also welcome as Society members. The prayer calendar even includes a prayer for children. There is no limit on members or calendars per household.

    The St. Therese Society hosts an annual MORNING OF REFLECTION in February. Contact the Office of Vocations for more information, vocations@arlingtondiocese.org or (703) 841-2514.

    You can download the prayer calendar for September-December 2016 here.



    We commit ourselves to offering the following:    

    1. Offer a daily prayer for the person on the prayer calendar.
    2. Offer a daily prayer for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated religious life. 

    We also encourage each other to:

    • Pray for those in our diocese already serving as priests  and  in consecrated religious life.
    • Pray for those in formation and those already serving while:  
      • Attending Mass
      • Attending Holy Hour
      • Offering up our suffering
