Let us ask God to give worthy priests, brothers and sisters to His holy Church.
O God, we earnestly beseech Thee to bless this Archdiocese with many priests, brothers and sisters who will love Thee with their whole strength and gladly spend their entire lives to serve Thy Church and make Thee known and loved.
Bless our families, bless our children.
Choose from our homes those who are needed for Thy work.
Mary, Queen of the clergy:
Pray for us. Pray for our priests and religious. Obtain for us many more.
