St Mary's & St John Bosco Parish - Make Thurdays a day of prayer for vocations

Sunday 3rd May was Vocations Sunday when we pray especially for Vocations to the Priesthood and religious life but Bishop Patrick is asking that we make every Thursday a day when we pray for vocations.

There are lots of prayers, resources and vocation stories available on the 'Catholic Bishops of England and Wales web site'.

You can also view and download the Pope's message on vocations

Here is a prayer you can use each Thurdsay when praying for vocations.

Loving Father,
you call us by name.
As we journey through life
help us to be confident in our own unique identity
and to find opportunities to
develop our own gifts and passions.

We pray that the Holy Spirit
will pour on us wisdom and guidance
to help us realise and follow our dreams,
discerning your plan for our lives.

Bless your Church
by raising up dedicated and generous people
from our families and friends
who will serve as Priests, Deacons,
Sisters and Brothers.

May we support one another in response to God’s call.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
