THE HOLY FATHER'S PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Jesus, Son of God,
in whom the fullness of Divinity dwells,
You call all the baptized to "put out into the deep,"
taking the path that leads to holiness.
Waken in the hearts of young people the desire
to be witnesses in the world of today
to the power of your love.
Fill them with your Spirit of fortitude and prudence,
so that they may be able to discover the full truth
about themselves and their own vocation.
Our Savior,
sent by the Father to reveal His merciful love,
give to your Church the gift
of young people who are ready to put out into the deep,
to be the sign among their brothers
of Your presence which renews and saves.
Holy Virgin, Mother of the Redeemer,
sure guide on the way towards God and toward neighbor,
You who pondered his word in the depth of your heart,
sustain with your motherly intercession
our families and our ecclesial communities,
so that they may help adolescents and young people
to answer generously the call of the Lord.
Amen.

Vocations Facilitators

With the changing numbers of men entering the seminary, there’s an immediate need to increase the opportunities for discernment to the priesthood and religious life.

This often involves going beyond the traditional venues, by offering something special that may have a greater impact on one’s life 

than anything they have ever experienced. That “something” is a vocations-focused pilgrimage to a very special Holy site somewhere in the world that would move someone closer to accepting God’s call. Over the years we have witnessed firsthand the power of a pilgrimage in changing lives when these men come in physical contact with their faith! Be it at a saint’s tomb, viewing a Holy Relic or even praying at a Marian apparition site, they are often struck in a profound way by the Holy Spirit.
Canterbury Pilgrimages offers unique experiences for each diocesan vocations office, working individually with you and your staff to ensure the pilgrimage reflects your own thoughts and ideas on what will make that journey unique and spirit-filled to the men who will attend.
Not convinced this is the journey you've been waiting for? Don't take our word for it!


Father Jeremy Paulin, OMV, shares his experiences with Canterbury Pilgrimages.
