World Day of Prayer for Vocations, May 4, 2014. We invite you to join us in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament to ask for vocations to the priesthood and the consecrated religious life and that the Holy Spirit pour down a wellspring of grace on our archdiocese that will foster vocations in our homes. This event will be held in the chapel of St. Mary’s Seminary, beginning with Mass at 9:30AM. Then, we will have adoration before the Blessed Sacrament until 5:00PM. Each hour from 11:00AM – 3:00PM will have communal prayer and silence, and the hours of 3:00 – 5:00PM will have “praise and worship” music. After each hour, refreshments and fellowship are available all day in the Nold Building of the Seminary.
We have made a schedule for various groups within the Archdiocese (will be published soon). Please look at the schedule below for the hour your group has been assigned. Of course, you are welcome to attend a different hour if you prefer. In addition to those listed, other groups and individuals are also welcome and wanted. If you know of another group that wants to attend together, please have them call us (713/ 652-8239) to let us know which hour they will be present. All are welcome at any and all times, with or without advance notice.
