National Vocation Awareness Week
During National Vocation Awareness Week (Nov. 7-13), we invite you to join us in praying for all those who are discerning their path in life. Each of the tabs below features a prayer that was written, adapted or chosen by our Sisters for this special week.
Prayer for those discerning Vocations
Hail Mary, full of grace;
all generations call you blessed.
Hail Mother of God; when asked by the angel
to bear the Son of God,
filled with faith, you responded:
“Let it be done unto me.”
Holy Mother of Jesus, at the wedding feast at Cana,
you prompted your Son to perform his first sign.
Be with those who are discerning their life’s work
and guide them in the way they are called to follow
in the footsteps of Jesus.
O Mary, patroness of our country,
turn your motherly care to this nation.
Intercede for us to the Lord of the harvest
to send more laborers to the harvest
in this land dedicated to your honor.
Queen of Peace, Mirror of Justice, Health of the Sick,
Inspire young people; fill them with hope
to serve those in greatest need.
We ask all of this as followers of your Son, our Brother, Jesus.
