Prayers

  • Prayer for Seminarians
    Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for these men whom You have called to discern priesthood. We beg Your continued blessings on our Diocese and families. Call forth even more men of generous spirit and fervent love whom You desire for this holy work. Amen.
    St. Joseph, pray for us.
  • Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood
    O Lord Jesus Christ, great High-Priest, we ask You to call many worthy souls to Your holy priesthood. Enlighten the superiors in the choice of candidates, the spiritual directors in guiding them, and the professors in instructing them. Lead the seminarians daily in unerring footsteps, so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom, and heroes of sacrifice; steeped in humility and aflame with Divine Love; apostles of Your glory and sanctifiers of souls. Amen.
    Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us;
    obtain for us many holy priests.
    St. Vincent de Paul, protector of the clergy, pray that God will bless us with many good priests.
