“O God, who willed to provide shepherds for your people,
pour out in your Church a spirit of piety and fortitude,
to raise up worthy ministers for your altars.”
- From the Collect for a Mass for Vocations to Holy Orders
Mass for Vocations
The Church provides a Mass for Vocations to Holy Orders in her Masses for Various Needs and Occasions, for the “pastoral advantage” of the community, praying that those called to Holy Orders (to be deacons, priests and bishops) may hear and answer God's call.
Here are resources to help prepare such a Mass to be celebrated in a parish, school or for occasions such as a deanery gathering.
