A Day of Prayer for Vocations
Wednesday, August 7th
The Vocation Committee is asking people to join them in a day of prayer for the intention for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Jesus told us to ask- so that we might receive. He said: the harvest is plenty but the laborers are few so ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers into the fields. The committee’s patron saint is St. John Vianney, patron of parish priests. St. John Vianney’s feast day is August 4. During Adoration Wednesday, August 7 the committee is asking for parishioners to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament for the intention of “bringing workers into the fields”.
"When we go before the Blessed Sacrament, let us open our heart; our good God will open His. We shall go to Him; He will come to us; the one to ask, the other to receive. It will be like a breath from one to the other." St. John Vianney, Cure of Ars
