National Vocation Awareness Week
National Vocation Awareness Week, celebrated November 7-13, 2021, is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to the promotion of vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.
Lasallian Vocation Prayer
Jesus, our brother, you have called us by name, and you continue to call us to live as sisters and brothers, one, in God’s family.
We praise you for your goodness to us and thank you for all your gifts, especially the gift of being Lasallian.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us that we may take risks like you did, and by following your example we may faithfully serve all of God’s people.
Through the intercession of our Founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle and our Lasallian Saints, and through our personal witness, we ask you to bless our Institute with an increase of Lasallian vocations so that your children, especially the poor and marginalized, may be given a human and Christian education. In a special way, we ask you to inspire young men to associate themselves with us as De La Salle Christian Brothers. We pray this through Christ, Our Lord.
