World Day of Prayer is observed on Sunday, May 8, 2022 marks the 59th Anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Also known as "Good Shepherd Sunday. The purpose of World Day of Prayer for Vocations is to publicly fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). As a climax to a prayer that is continually offered throughout the Church, it affirms the primacy of faith and grace in all that concerns vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated life. While appreciating all vocations, the Church concentrates its attention this day on vocations to the ordained ministries (priesthood and diaconate), consecrated life in all its forms (male and female religious life, societies of apostolic life, consecrated virginity), secular institutes in their diversity of services and membership, and to the missionary life.

Holy Hour for Vocations with Bishop Lucia I would like to personally invite all of you to join Bishop Lucia for a Holy Hour for Vocations on Saturday, June 4th at 10 AM at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. You are probably aware that the first Saturday in June is when we would typically have a priestly ordination for the diocese. Since this is an unusual year in so far that we do not have a seminarian who will be ordained to the priesthood, I asked the Bishop's permission to memorialize this day with a special Holy Hour where we could gather as a diocesan family and pray for an outpouring of priestly vocations for our diocese. It should be very moving. From Fr. Hage

Mothers' Day Blessing

“When needed, Mary provides for the defense and salvation of her children extraordinary graces and wonderful miracles. What wonders have caused, sustained, spread everywhere, confidence among Christian people! What striking proofs of her protection the Church recalls to our memory in solemn feasts and devout practices, enriched by precious indulgences! What titles Christians give her to testify to their gratitude, 'Help of Christians, health of the sick, comfort of the afflicted, refuge of sinners, gate of heaven, our life, our sweetness, our hope!' What a multitude of people gather to the places where she is most honored, where she obtains the most assistance to those who call on her! What prayers and acts of thanksgiving are offered at the foot of her altars! In our days, what conquests have been made by Our Lady of Victories! What favors have been bestowed on all hearts devoted to the Heart of Mary!”

— Saint Ignatius Loyola
