Virtual Vocation Icon and Guidelines
Please pray daily as a family with the Vocation Icon for one week in your home.
After that time, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your family name and that you prayed for Vocations for one week. Your family name will be listed in the SMMA Bulletin under the heading: “Thank You for Vocation Prayers.”
Below is the virtual Vocation Icon image and prayer.
Vocation Icon Prayer
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. Amen
