Welcome to the churchvocations.com, a religious resource of the Diocese of Cleveland

May God bless you and keep you while you are on this journey of faith.

“I address this plea in a special way to those of you whom the Lord is calling to the priesthood and the consecrated life. Do not be afraid to say “yes” to Jesus, to find your joy in doing his will, giving yourself completely to the pursuit of holiness, and using all your talents in the service of others!” - Pope Benedict XVI at World Youth Day July 20, 2008

Monthly Vocation Prayers

Lord Jesus, grant our young people generosity to follow your call and courage to overcome all obstacles to their vocation. Give their parents the faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice to offer their children to God's service and to rejoice when one of them is called to priesthood or religious life. Let the example of our Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph encourage young people and parents, and let your grace sustain them. Amen.

Dear God, you call me to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with you. Help me to know how to bring justice and love to a world that is desperately in need of you and your values. Strengthen me with courage and generosity to respond to your invitation. I ask this is the name of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
