The World Day of Prayer for Vocations celebrates vocations to ordained ministry and religious life in all its forms. This year it falls on Sunday May 3, Good Shepherd Sunday.
“The Lord’s call is not an intrusion of God in our freedom; it is not a “cage” or a burden to be borne. On the contrary, it is the loving initiative whereby God encounters us and invites us to be part of a great undertaking. He opens before our eyes the horizon of a greater sea and an abundant catch.”
In the lead up to World Day of Prayer for Vocations, we are using social media to encourage more people to pray for vocations. To do this, we are inviting everyone to take a photo of themselves holding up a plain white card/paper with the handwritten words – “#ImPrayingForVocations” and post it on social media.
We hope that this ‘hashtag’ campaign will bring the online community together, and that through solidarity, will encourage more people to pray for vocations.
Feel free to spread the word out on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Make sure to include in your post the text #ImPrayingforVocations and a mention of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations on Sunday May 3, 2020
The campaign will run from Monday April 27 through to Sunday May 3.
