The Office of Vocations in the Diocese of Dallas exists to assist prospective candidates who are discerning a priestly vocation in the Church.
As part of our remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, please take a moment to view a short video of
"Cardinal Edward Egan: Being a Priest."
He explains the importance of being a priest following the 9/11 attacks and how the priest is needed. Also included are many links to 9/11 commemoration resources from the USCCB page,
"9/11: The Catholic Church Remembers."
PRAYER FOR RELIGIOUS VOCATIONS
Your loving providence accompanies us on our life’s journey. Thank you for your many gifts to us. We ask that you continue to call sons and daughters from our families and parishes to serve as priests, deacons, and consecrated men and women. Send your Spirit upon us so that many will respond with great love to your call to service in your Church. Give to those you have chosen the faith of the apostle, the vision of the prophet, and the courage of the martyr. Help us to be faithful disciples of your Son by following the example of Mary. Make us generous in sharing ourselves and our talents for the sake of your Kingdom on earth. We ask this through Christ your Son.
