Prayers for Vocations


Gracious and loving God,

help the men and women of our parish to hear the call to serve your Church.

Our needs are great and our people thirst for your presence.

Open the hearts of many, raise up faithful servants of the Gospel,

dedicated holy priests, sisters, brothers, and deacons,

who will spend themselves for your people and their needs.

Bless those who are serving now with courage and perseverance.

Grant that many will be inspired by their example and faith.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.




Good and gracious God,

You have called us through Baptism to discipleship with your Son, Jesus Christ,

and have sent us to bring the Good News of salvation to all peoples.

We pray that you grant us more priests, deacons, and religious

to build up your Church within The Diocese of Wilmington.

Inspire our young men and women by the example of our priests, deacons, and religious

to give themselves totally to the work of Christ and His Church.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
