Vocation reflections

Two priests in our diocese – Fr. Daniel Yasinski and Fr. Edward Gibney – share their journey toward priesthood:


Prayer For Vocations:

Heavenly Father,
bless your Church
with an abundance of
holy and zealous priests,
deacons, brothers and sisters.
Give those you have called to the married state
And those you have chosen to live as single persons
in the world, the special graces that their lives require.
Form us all in the likeness of your son so that in him,
with him and through him we may love you more deeply
and serve you more faithfully always and everywhere.

With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.

Canadian Organization for Life and Family

At a time when all the baptized are called to actively engage in the new evangelization, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family offers an enthusiastic look at vocations in a message to families, entitled “Families, did you know? Love is calling your children.”

Unique and irreplaceable, every child conceived in the womb is called by God to a unique mission. It is in the family, first, that boys and girls learn to know and to trust Him, as they discern their call to love, and, in imitation of Jesus’ self‐giving love, to give themselves in marriage, the priesthood, consecrated life or apostolic celibacy. View and download this publication
