Each year, the Church celebrates Priesthood Sunday on the last Sunday in September. Priesthood Sunday is a time set aside to celebrate our priests, without whom the Sacraments could not be celebrated. A great way to participate this year (September 27) is to take the opportunity to promote vocations within your families, schools, teams, workplaces, organizations, groups of friends, and local communities.
Here is a tip to get the conversation started:
While it is good and necessary for everyone to “pray for more priests,” it would be even better if you also ENCOURAGE young men to become priests. Follow these steps:
1. Think of a young man in your life, who you think would make a good priest.
2. Ask him, directly and clearly, if he’s ever considered priesthood.
3. Tell him the specific gift you see in him that led you to ask the question, and encourage him to keep his heart open.
4. Give him our Vocation Director’s contact information.
