    Vocation Icon Program

    “The harvest is truly plentiful but the laborers are few. Pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest that he send laborers into his harvest.” (Matthews 9:37-38)

    We all have a responsibility to foster future leaders of the Church, priests, sisters, deacons and laity alike, dedicated to serve God’s people. Beginning on Sunday October 1, 2017, we will be participating in the Metropolitan-wide Pilgrim Vocation Icon Program. Parishioners will be able to take the icon home and pray daily for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. The program will run from October 1, 2017, until the Sunday of All Saints, May 27, 2018.  A sign-up sheet is available at the back of the church, and families can sign up for more than one week in a row if desired.
