Why become a priest? Hear what our seminarians have to say. 

Idaho Catholics are encouraged to participate in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in their parishes to pray for an increase of vocations in the diocese.

Prayers cards and other resources are available through the Vocation Office.

Prayers for Vocations

Dear Lord, we pray: 

For Bishop Peter, our priests, and our deacons.  
Strengthen them in their ministry.  
Fill them with joy in your service.  
Bless them with deep faith and firm hope as they
love your people and seek the salvation of souls.
For men and women in religious life.   
Strengthen them in their ministries,
their sacrifices, and their prayers.   
Make them joyful and devoted witnesses of your love.
For the seminarians of our diocese.  
Assist them and guide them in their studies, prayer, and formation.
For all people.
Help us to respond generously to your call.
Grant that we will do whatever you ask of us.

Dear Lord, I pray:

That holy marriages will reflect your love in the world.
That loving parents and families will nurture vocations.
That young people will have open minds and hearts to your call.
That people who are single will be committed to joyful service.
That priests, deacons, and religious will be devoted examples of loving ministry.
That I will love you with all my heart, mind, and soul.
