World Day of Prayer for Vocations 2022

2022 Marks the 59th Anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations

World Day of Prayer for Vocations will be observed on Sunday, May 8th, also known as “Good Shepherd Sunday.”  The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord’s instruction to, “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest” (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2).  Please pray that more young men hear and respond generously to the Lord’s call to the priesthood and religious life, especially to the Franciscan Friars Conventual.  Know a young man who you believe would make an awesome friar?  Tell him that!  And identify the specific gifts you see in him!
