Please join us in praying a Novena for the Seven Seminarians:
 Jonathon Bokuniewicz, Brett Ivey, Jack Jobst, Randy Koenigsknecht, Daniel LaCroix, Joshua Luttig, and Christian Salata

as they prepare to be ordained to the Diaconate on Saturday, May 11, 2024

Beginning Thursday, May 2, and concluding on Friday, May 10, let us all pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be each day for the following intentions:

Day 1: In thanksgiving for our Baptism and sharing in the mission of Christ.

Day 2: For the grace to discern how God is calling us to know, love, and serve Him.

Day 3: For the grace to accept our calling generously.

Day 4: For those currently living a generous single life for the Lord.

Day 5: For the protection of our vocations from every diabolical attack.

Day 6: For the gift of holy marriages and families, the well-spring of vocations.

Day 7: For an abundance of ordained clergy to bring us the Sacraments.

Day 8: For the gift of religious sisters and brothers to serve the Church.

Day 9: For all in consecrated life (including third orders) who pray for us.

Let us pray:

Hear us, we beseech you, Lord, our God,

and pour out on these your servants the blessing of the Holy Spirit,

that these men, who are to be consecrated to your service,

may be surrounded by your rich and unfailing grace.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen!
