World Day of Prayer for Vocations

04/21/24

Pray With Us Today

Holy Spirit,  stir within us the passion to promote vocations to the single and married life, consecrated life,
societies of apostolic life, diocesan priesthood, and permanent diaconate. 

Inspire us daily to respond to Your call with boundless compassion, abundant generosity, and radical availability.

Help us to remember our own baptismal call to rouse us to invite the next generation to hear and respond to Your call.

Inspire parents, families, and lay ecclesial ministers to begin a conversation with young Catholics to consider how
they will live lives of holiness and sacred service.

Nudge inquirers and motivate discerners to learn more about vowed and associate commitment in apostolic life,
cloistered life, evangelical life, lay ecclesial ministers, missionary life, monastic life, and societies of apostolic life.  

Ignite our Church with the confident humility that there is an urgent need for all the baptized to live their vocation
in solidarity with those who are poor, neglected, and marginalized.

Disrupt our comfortable lives and complacent attitudes with new ideas to respond
courageously and creatively with a daily 'YES!'  Amen.

About World Day of Prayer of Vocations
This special day, also liturgically known as “Good Shepherd Sunday”, invites the Church to publicly pray for and promote vocations in all its forms.  This is now the sixtieth time that we are celebrating the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, established by Saint Paul VI in 1964, during the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.  This providential initiative seeks to assist the members of the People of God, as individuals and as communities, to respond to the call and mission that the Lord entrusts to each of us in today’s world, amid its afflictions and its hopes, its challenges, and its achievements.

FSPA Vocations

Do you desire to live a life of prayer, community and service? Discern your call with us! We are Catholic sisters. We are vowed Franciscan women centered in Eucharist. Our mission is to be loving presence through prayer, witness and service.  We are dedicated to sharing life in community, which centers us in prayer and deepens the meaning of our consecrated life– the vows of poverty, consecrated celibacy and obedience that we profess. Our most sacred tradition is perpetual adoration. Our devotion to Jesus Christ and the holy Gospel fuels our service to those on the margins. We are inspired to bring the love of Christ that we encounter in the chapel out to the world.
