Knight of Columbus Prayer for Vocations:

O Father, inspire among Christians many holy vocations to the
priesthood that keep alive the faith and preserve the grateful memory
of your son Jesus through preaching his Word and administering the
Sacraments with which you ceaselessly renew your faithful.

Call forth ministers of your mercy who, through the sacrament of
Reconciliation, may spread the joy of your forgiveness.

O Father, make the Church welcome joyously the many inspirations of
the Spirit of your Son and, docile to His teachings, nurture vocations
to the priestly ministry and to the consecrated life.

Support the bishops, priests and deacons, the consecrated persons and
all the baptized in Christ, so that they may faithfully fulfill their
mission at the service of the Gospel.

We ask for this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Queen of the Apostles, pray for us!
