Since 2016, the First Friday in the month of May has been designated by Cardinal Collins as our Archdiocesan Day of Prayer for Vocations.
As such, we invite all of our parishes and individuals throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto, to pray in a special way for all religious vocations; Priesthood, Religious and Consecrated Life.
Join the Office of Vocations and everyone throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto in praying the prayer below.
Prayer for Vocations:
Lord Jesus, as you once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men, let Your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come follow Me! Give young men and women the grace of responding quickly to Your voice. Support our bishops, priests, and consecrated people in their apostolic labour. Grant perseverance to our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally consecrated to Your service. Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness. Lord, send workers to Your harvest and do not allow humanity to be lost for the lack of pastors, missionaries, and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel. Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say "yes" to the Lord who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation. Amen.
