Take the yoke of the Lord, for His yoke is sweet and His burden light

As a congregation, we fervently pray for an increase in vocations. If you are interested in learning more about the priesthood in the diocese of Grand Rapids, please look into this site: http://www.grpriests.org. The Director of Priestly Vocations for the Diocese of Grand Rapids is Rev. Ronald D. Hutchinson. His email is rhutchinson@dioceseofgrandrapids.org. Those who have an interest in the religious life are invited to speak with one of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, who can be reached through the form below. We also invite you to join us in prayer:

Prayer of Blessed John Paul II for Vocations

Lord Jesus, as You once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men, let your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come follow Me!

Give young men and women the grace of responding quickly to your voice. Support our bishops, priests and consecrated people in their apostolic labor.

Grant perseverance to our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally consecrated to your service.

Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness. Lord, SEND WORKERS TO YOUR HARVEST and do not allow humanity to be lost for the lack of pastors, missionaries and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel.

Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say “yes” to the Lord who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation.
