Novena for Vocations

During 2011 we had two Come & See gatherings at St. Joseph Seminary with a combined attendance of 28 young men. Of these, six are either now seminarians or in the application process for entering the seminary to further discern the call to serve God’s people as priests. For this we are grateful to the Lord of the harvest.

Our next Come & See weekend is Feb. 10-12, and we would like to invite as many as possible to join us again in the prayer of the Novena to the Holy Spirit for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life beginning on February 1. The text has been sent to parishes but also can be downloaded from

Thank you all for participating in this response to Jesus’ request, “Pray to the Lord of the harvest, that He send workers into His harvest.”
