Pray for Vocations: Vianney Cenacle
Every first-Thursday of the month Vianney Cenacle at Our Lady Star of the Sea in Bremerton gathers to join in prayer in support of priests and vocations. All are invited to come pray for our priests and for vocations to the priesthood and religious life!
The Archdiocese of Seattle has a new prayer team to pray for our priests! Join the team to receive a weekly email with the names of the priests we are praying for.

Prayer for Priests
Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our priests.
Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments.
Help our priests to be strong in their vocation.
Set their souls on fire with love for your people.
Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom.
Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel.
Allow them to experience joy in their ministry.
Help them to become instruments of your divine grace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.
(from the USCCB)
God our Father,
You call each of us
to use our gifts in the Body of Christ.
Inspire your people
with desire to know you,
the grace to understand your will,
and, with the strength of the Holy Spirit,
the courage to respond
with love and freedom.
Send workers into your great harvest
so that the Gospel is preached, the poor
are served with love, the suffering are comforted,
and your people are strengthened by the sacraments.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
