World Day of Prayer for Vocations

World Day of Prayer for Vocations has been celebrated by the Church since 1964, when the visionary Pope Paul VI recognized a decline in priestly vocations and called all Catholics to intercede for an increase in vocations.

Each year, Vianney Vocations prepares special resources to help parishes and schools observe this important day. For us it is not a “one-day event,” but an annual opportunity to re-energize the Church’s efforts to foster priestly and religious vocations.

World Day of Prayer for Vocations is May 8, 2022. This is the Fourth Sunday of Easter, also called Good Shepherd Sunday because of the Gospel readings. In 2022, it is also Mother’s Day.
