Prayer for Vocations

Father, hear the prayers of your people,
and bring to maturity the seeds you have sown
in the field of your Church.
May those you have called

respond courageously to your invitation
by devoting themselves to the service
of their brothers and sisters as priests.

Raise up worthy ministers for your altars
and ardent but gentle servants of the Gospel.
May those who follow in the footsteps of Christ your Son
grow, and provide by their way of life
a convincing sign of your kingdom
for the Church and the whole world.
May the priests of your Church increase in numbers,

and persevering in their prayer,
perform their ministry with gentleness and concern for others.

Father, keep them all faithful to the call of the Gospel
that the world may see in them
the living image of your Son, Jesus Christ,
who is Lord for ever and ever.

Your gift to Cathedral Seminary House of Formation helps the Church accomplish its mission to form seminarians into missionary disciples, equipped spiritually and intellectually to become priests in the image of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
