A Prayer for Priests
You have called us through Baptism to discipleship believing in your Son, Jesus Christ, who has sent us to bring the Good News of salvation to the world. We pray to you, asking that you grant us more priests and religious who will help us build up your Church in the Diocese of Belleville and the world. Stir up the grace of a religious vocation in the hearts of many of our youth. Grant to them the willingness and generosity to give of themselves in service to our Lord Jesus and his people. May a new generation of priests, deacons, sisters, and brothers be a sign of your presence among us. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
All the good that we do is dependant on willing leaders and volunteers. We are grateful for their service!
