Now, more than ever, the Church is in need of young men and women eager to commit their lives to serving in a sacrificial way through the priesthood and consecrated life. As you know, this cannot be accomplished without prayer. With the help of the Serra Club of Boulder County, we invite your parish to participate in this program and help cultivate a positive environment dedicated to fostering future vocations within the Boulder Deanery. The Vocation Prayer Crucifix Program, through a series of reflections, encourages families to participate in regular prayerful discussions about the priesthood and consecrated life.
Each Saturday/Sunday at Mass, volunteer parishioners will accept the responsibility of praying for vocations at home with their family. If possible, the priest will call the family to the altar after communion to receive the Crucifix and prayers. The family takes the Chalice home and displays it in a prominent place of honor for all members to see during the week. At a special time each day, perhaps after dinner or before bed, the family will come together to pray for and concentrate on vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life and at the same time, explain and prompt young children and teenagers to consider how God is calling them into a deeper relationship with Him. At the end of the week return the Crucifix to the Parish Office by close of business on the Friday or to the Sacristy at the church prior to the start of 4:00 p.m. Mass. Thank you for your prayers and assistance in helping to promote vocations!
