Pray Daily for a Future Priest or Sister

The St. Therese Vocation Society is a group of men and women who pray daily for vocations and for the individuals in formation as priests and religious in our diocese. These men and women who have responded to God's call rely on these prayers from hundreds of their brothers and sisters in Christ. Members of the society receive a calendar in the mail quarterly that lists someone in formation to pray for each day. There are no dues or meetings; only the promise of your prayers and an annual Morning of Reflection (in February) to strengthen you as a prayer warrior.

Complete the form below to join the St. Therese Society and receive a quarterly prayer calendar in the mail.

  • Fr. Jaffe welcomed everyone and thanked them for praying for vocations;
  • Fr. Pinizzotto stressed that "our prayer should take us out of ourselves to serve others," and proposed ways promote vocations in our schools and parishes;
  • The St. Therese Committee from the Ghanaian Community prepared the group with song before the Holy Hour; and
  • All joined in a Holy Hour to pray for vocations on the weekend of World Day for Consecrated Life.

Other, not listed 

I wish to become a member of the St. Therese Vocation Society. As a member of the Society, I commit myself to offering the following for an increase in vocations in our Diocese, for the perseverance of the seminarians now studying for the priesthood, and for an outpouring of grace upon the priests, deacons and religious serving our Diocese:

  • a daily prayer for the person on the prayer calendar
  • a daily prayer for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated religious life

By continuing, I commit to pray for vocations.
