The St. Margaret Mary Vocation Committee promotes vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life through awareness and committed prayer.
Parishioners are given the opportunity to pray for vocations in two principal ways. The first is by signing up to take the Vocation Cup home for a week at a time. During this time, the cup is to be placed in a central or special place, and the host family says a prayer(s) or makes a special sacrifice, etc. of their own choosing for vocations. The second opportunity is to choose a day of the month on which to pray or sacrifice for vocations.
Sign up sheets for the Vocation Cup or for a day of prayer on the monthly calendar are located in the Holy Family Room in the rear of church in the Vocation Corner.
Questions can be directed to Evelyn Bardua or Linda Lech through the parish office

Prayer for Vocations
O Lord, Jesus Christ, we pray for You to prompt more of our young men and women with the desire to serve You as priests, brothers, and sisters. Grant to more of our young people a spirit of willing sacrifice that will lead them to dedicate their lives to your service. Give to fathers and mothers a deep faith and an apostolic spirit that by their example they may inspire their children to serve You in the priesthood or in the religious life. Give us all the strength and courage to do Your Holy Will. Amen
