Liturgical Year 2019 is the Year of Vocations. My Diocese of Springfield, MA will be praying the following prayer at all Masses beginning in Advent.
Lord Jesus, please provide our diocese with many vocations to the priesthood and religious life, especially from our own parishes.
May the men and women you call respond with joy and courage, and may their families and friends support them wholeheartedly as they seek your Father's will.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Vocations. Amen.
