Almighty Father, we beg you for an increase in religious vocations and holy marriages in our diocese. Help us to be generous in our response to your call.
Choose from our homes those who are needed for your work and strengthen us with the courage to say “yes” and to follow you.
Help us as a diocese, as a parish, as families to encourage and foster vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate, and consecrated life.
We commend our prayers to our patroness, Mary, Queen of the Rosary, and ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr
