The Diocese of New Westminster is taking steps to actively promote vocations to diaconal and priestly ministry (ordained vocation).
This active promotion aligns with our desire as Christian people to be faithful servants of the Lord and to ensure an ongoing supply of clergy for Christ’s church. The culmination of the Diocesan promotion for 2016 will be Vocations Day on October 22, 2016.
We will also be undertaking prior promotion and information sharing about vocations in the church to encourage widespread conversations about vocations.
The main promotional event is A Sunday of Call, being held on September 25, 2016.
The Bishop is asking all parish clergy to focus the worship on this day on the topic of Divine Call. She has authorized alternate propers and prayers for this day.
They are available to download below.
