Prayer For Vocations 

God our Father,
You give us the Sacraments as signs and instruments of your love and mercy.
Draw from amongst your disciples men who are willing to serve your Church generously as priests in the Diocese of Westminster,
to minister to your people and to proclaim the Gospel to all.
Send your Spirit to guide and strengthen them,
to be their companion on the journey,
as they discern your will for their lives.
This prayer we make through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Our Blessed Lady Immaculate
