One of the prayer ministries at Old Mission Santa Inés is to pray the rosary for vocations. This prayer group meets weekdays at 1PM in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel to pray the rosary for priests, other religious vocations, marriage vocations and discernment by listening and going where God is calling each of us in our lives especially young people who are deciding on a vocation. If you cannot join the group at their scheduled time, you can still pray the rosary for vocations using this helpful booklet Rosary for Vocations.
In 2012, the Vatican called for continuous prayer for vocations. The Rosary is a hallowed prayer to meditate on Christ’s life as well as intercede for special intentions according to Invisible Monastery - a group whose mission is to help create a culture of vocations and inspire more men to consider the priesthood of Jesus Christ.
“The priest is a gift from the Heart of Christ: a gift for the Church and for the world.” Pope Benedict XVI at the close of the Year for Priests
Lord Jesus Christ, you called St. Francis of Assisi
to follow you in living the Gospel life.
You inspired others to follow him
by the power of his example.
We ask you to increase vocations to the Church,
to the Capuchin Order, especially on the West Coast,
and to all religious orders.
Inspire young men and women to devote their lives in your service.
This we earnestly petition
through our Seraphic Father,
St. Francis and Our Lady of Angels,
Patroness of the Capuchin Franciscans Western America Province.
