NCDVD



I arrived here Monday morning after cancelled flights, missed flights, lost suitcases to attend the Vocations Personnel Institute, hosted my the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors.  With over thirty guys from across the US, Canada and England we have gather to first Pray together, and the learn more about our ministry as Vocations Directors. 
         We have looked at calling forth vocations in a secular society, using modern technology, and fostering a culture of vocations in our dioceses.  We have spent a lot of time on the needs of the Candidate/Seminarian during the discernment/ application process and the needs of the diocese during the same process.
         The community of Sacred Heart School of Theology has been very welcoming to us, and they have a beautiful campus.  The meals are wonderful, and the spirit of Hospitality is true to the spirit of the Priests of the Sacred Heart.  This so far has been a wonderful time of learning and fellowship, I can’t wait to get home and put some of what I learned in to Practice.  Together lets us pray for Vocations to the Priesthood for our archdiocese.


 Prayer for Vocations
Archdiocese of St. John’s

Lord, You told us "The harvest indeed
is great but the laborers are few.
Pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest
to send laborers into His harvest."
We ask You to strengthen us as we follow
the vocation to which You have called us.
We pray particularly for those called to
serve as priests in the
Archdiocese of St. John’s.
We pray for those called to serve as
sisters, brothers and deacons.
Father we pray for those whom You
have called, those You are calling now
especially N, and those You will call
in the future.  May they be open and
responsive to the call of serving your people.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
 
St. John The Baptist Pray for Us
St. John Vianney Pray For Us
