Father, in every generation you provide
ministers of Christ and the Church.
We come before you now, asking that you
call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese
in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide
your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament.
Bless us with priestly vocations
so that we can continue to be a truly
Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship
of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous
in their service, willing to offer their lives
and all their gifs for your greater glory
and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of
the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
