The Fourth Sunday of Easter, traditionally known as “Good Shepherd Sunday” is also the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Let us pray for one another, that we may each “live in a way worthy of the calling” each of us have received from the Lord
(cf. Ephesians 4:1).
Let us pray for our St. Malachi seminarians, Bobby Johansen and Jack McLinden, all seminarians and all who are in formation for the diaconate, vowed religious life, pastoral ministry; let us pray for engaged couples preparing for the vocation of marriage; let us pray
for all who are discerning God’s grace & call in life and who may be considering important life decisions; let us pray for those who are newly confirmed as they begin living as fully-initiated Catholic Christian disciples.
