A CALL TO SERVICE PRIESTLY VOCATION INITIATIVE

PURPOSE:  The purpose of this new program is to get all of our Brother Knights, their families and parishes to be more aware and mindful of recognizing potential priestly vocations in their own parish.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • A card with a vocation prayer on one side and priestly vocation information contacts for your diocese on the other side is distributed to all Knights in your council. You can also include parish members and other ministries in your distribution.
  • Ask them to carry this card with them
  • When they see a young man in the parish who seems to be serious about his faith give him this card and ask him if he has ever considered becoming a priest.
  • Be open for a conversation and let him know that this card contains a vocation prayer for discernment and contact information for your diocese.

 

VOCATION PRAYER ON CARD:

O Lord, Jesus, I love you and I am very happy to know you and your Father.  I appreciate the love you have shown me and to those I love.  I love this life and thank you for the talents that you have given me, including the judgement to use those gifts in a way that is pleasing to you. For this, please lead me to a life providing happiness to others and leading them closer to you.  I pray that the Holy Spirit will bless me with the graces to recognize your plans for my life and the courage to pursue them.  Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
