Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish Vocations Awareness Ministry

Prayer for Vocations

After placing the Vocations Blessing Cup in the center of the prayer area, and perhaps lighting a candle, make the sign of the cross and begin.

Leader: Father, You inspire and bring to fulfillment every good intention. Guide your people in the way of salvation, and watch over those who have left all things to give themselves entirely to you. By following Christ, renouncing worldly power and profit, may they serve you and their brothers faithfully and in the spirit of poverty and humility.

Amen

Group: Good and Gracious God, as we gather around the blessing cup, we ask You to send us more candidates for the priesthood and religious life, especially for the Diocese of Charlotte, the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, and the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena. Keep our seminarians and candidates for the religious life in the palm of Your hand, guiding them on their spiritual journey. Bless our priests, brothers, sisters, and deacons. And if it should please You to give one of us a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, we would thank You with all of our hearts. We ask these things in the name of Jesus, Our Lord, Amen.
