Vocations Ministry

The mission of vocations is to encourage and support people, through prayer and advocacy, to faithfully follow their calling to serve the Lord.

Although this ministry has few participants at this time we would ask all parishioners to pray daily for an increase in vocations in our diocese and parish. Holy Hours dedicated to prayer for vocations are held periodically in the Chapel. Please watch the bulletin for announcements.

Prayer for Vocations

Dear Jesus through our Baptism we are called to follow You. Help the Parish of Saint Mary Magdalene open our hearts and follow Your command to bring others close to You. Help us to live in the spirit of the first Christians, so that we may be a cenacle of prayer, in loving acceptance of the Holy Spirit and His gifts.

Bless our Parish with numerous priests, deacons, men and women in religious life, and consecrated laity. Help those who are being called to marriage to prayerfully enter into this holy covenant. Holy Spirit, guide us so we may hear God's call in our lives; strengthen us so we can be obedient to His will.

Saint Mary Magdalene, by your example you show us the joy of conversion. Pray that we may experience that joy in our lives and offer a response of loving service to our God. Pray that we may not fear to say "Thy will be done." Amen.
