A Prayer for Vocations

Loving and Generous God, it is You who call us by name and ask us to follow You.
Help us to grow in the Love and Service of our Church as we experience it today.

Give us the energy and courage of Your Spirit to shape its future

Grant us faith-filled leaders who will embrace Christ’s Mission of love and justice.

Bless the Church of St. Matthew by raising up dedicated and generous leaders from our families and friends who will serve Your people as Priests, Brothers, Deacons, and Sisters.

Inspire us to know You better and open our hearts to hear Your call.  We ask this through our Lord. Amen.
