Vocations

JOIN ST. RICHARD PARISH IN PRAYING FOR VOCATIONS

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 Diocese of Jackson by raising up dedicated and generous leaders from our families and friends who will serve Your people as priests and religious.  Inspire us to know You better and open our hearts to hear Your call. We ask this through our Lord.

Father, we’re your people, the work of your hands. So precious are we in your sight that you sent your Son, Jesus. Jesus calls us to heal the broken-hearted, to dry the tears of those who mourn, to give hope to those who despair, and to rejoice in your steadfast love. We, the baptized, realize our call to serve. Help us to know how. Call forth from among us priests, sisters, brothers and lay ministers. With our hearts you continue to love your people. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

The Diocese of Jackson currently has 9 seminarians.  Please remember them in your prayers.
