God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as priests, deacons, religious, and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit to help us respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.Learn More
Lord, my God and my loving Father, you have made me to know you, to love you, to serve you, and thereby to find and to fulfill my deepest longings. I know that you are in all things, and that every path can lead me to you. But of them all, there is one especially by which you want me to come to you. Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me: into my mind, to show me what you want of me; into my heart, to give me the determination to do it, and to do it with all my love, with all my mind, and with all of my strength right to the end. Jesus, I trust in you. Amen.Learn More
Lord Jesus, up until now you have been quietly preparing me to be your disciple. Now the time of preparation is ending. I seem to hear you say to me as once to Peter. “will you also go away?” You were saddened then by friends who failed you. But Peter did not fail. “Lord,” he said, “to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” I stand with Peter. Through prayer and counsel, show me, Lord, where it is in your vineyard that you want me to serve. Then give me strength to be faithful. Mary, Mother and Model, help me to respond in generous love to the call of your divine Son. Amen.Learn More
Loving God, you speak to us and nourish us through our ministry and in our community. Help us to give constant witness to your love and thereby inspire others to serve you as Brothers of the Christian Schools. May those who open their hearts to you be strengthened by your love and encouraged by our example. We pray this in the name of Jesus, your Son and our Brother. Amen.Learn More
God our Creator, daily you call each of us to respond to your love. Your call is life-giving and you ask us to give life. Your call is nurturing and you ask us to grow. Your call is ever faithful and you ask us to believe. As you call us to unity, help us to be the Church you ask us to be. As you call us to discipleship, help us to grow in our love of your Son. As you call us to love, send us your Spirit that we might know your way. Through the intercession of San Miguel, we ask you to speak loudly your call to us and to those you call to join us in our Institute. Give us and them the strength to respond as Jesus did. We ask this in His name. Amen.Learn More
Ignite our Church with the desire to fulfill the urgent need for religious sisters, brothers and priests, for their charisms, and lifelong service with those who are poor, neglected, and marginalized. Disrupt our comfort and complacency with new, faith-filled energy and creativity, so that like Mary, our Blessed Mother, we may respond with a courageous ‘YES!’Learn More
Holy Spirit, inspire us daily to use your Gifts and stir within us the passion to promote vocations to religious life. As we remember our own baptismal call, rouse us to invite the next generation to hear and respond to Your call to discipleship. Inspire all members of our Church to encourage young Catholics to consider religious life. Amen.Learn More
