Lord Jesus, you are the Good Shepherd, who cares for and raises up men and women to follow your lead as priests and consecrated religious. Grace our parish with many new church vocations, granting courage and generosity to our young people in response to the promptings of your Holy Spirit. May they know the support of their families and our community. Strengthen too those who have already responded to you as priests, deacons, religious and seminarians. May they constantly be strengthened by our prayers and support for them. We thank you Jesus for your continual faithfulness in all our lives. Amen.
