2021 Priestly Ordination Novena
We invite you to pray with our nine transitional deacons, men who will be ordained to the priesthood on May 15, a novena in supplication for more men to hear and answer God’s call to follow him in Holy Orders.
Jesus, Good Shepherd, you said: “The harvest indeed is great but the laborers are few.” We lovingly accept your invitation: “Pray the Heavenly Father to send forth laborers into his harvest.” Inspire in our Diocese a crusade for vocations. Grant us more priests! May they be the salt of the earth, the light of the world, the city placed on the mountaintop for the salvation of mankind redeemed by Your Blood. Look on us Jesus and our need for priests. Help those you are calling to hear Your voice and to respond generously to Your call. Mary, perfect disciple of Jesus, Mother and guardian of vocations, pray with us, pray for us and pray for all those young men called by God to be priests in our Diocese. Amen.
Please check back each day for more information on our 2021 ordinandi to the priesthood.
