Mission of Vocations Awareness


Everyone has a vocation in life, whether it is marriage, single life, religious life or Holy Orders. The Vocations Awareness ministry is responsible for promoting, encouraging, and praying for parishioners and community members to say "yes" to the call of the Lord to the priesthood or religious life.


Daily Vocational Prayer

Loving God,
Life is your gift to us.
Through Baptism you invite us to share
the gift of our life in service to others.
Be with us as we choose each day to show
Your presence in our world.
Give us courage and generosity to respond to your love, your call.
We pray especially for those who serve you as
Priests, Deacons, Religious Brothers and Sisters
throughout the Diocese of Albany. We pray also
for the Seminarians, Aspirants and Discerners
of the Diocese of Albany, that they may not be afraid
to answer God’s call to serve his Church. Open the minds
and hearts of many other men and women, that they
may accept Your challenge to build the Kingdom, Amen.

Vocations are born in prayer and from prayer;

and only in prayer can they persevere and bear fruit.

~Pope Francis
