Vocations Fair!

Has anyone ever told you that you’d make a good priest?  Do you find yourself drawn toward serving others?  Are you taking time every day to ask God what He desires from your life?  Do you have questions about what it would be like to be a priest?  Do you have a desire to give your life to Christ as a religious sister or brother?  Are you at least open to the possibility of  a priestly or religious vocation?  If so, mark your calendar for an exciting opportunity coming very soon to Thomas More College!

On Wednesday, November 9, 2016, the Diocese of Covington’s Office of Priestly Vocations will be hosting a Vocations Fair from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM at Thomas More College (333 Thomas More Pkwy, Crestview Hills, KY 41017).  Throughout the Fair there will be displays set up from not only the Vocations Office but also a number of religious congregations of men and women from the area.

Come out and spend some time having your questions answered and getting to know some enthusiastic priests, brothers, and sisters who have joyfully given their lives in service to Christ and His Church.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Vocation Prayer from Pope Francis

“Father of mercy, who gave your Son for our salvation and who strengthens us always with the gifts of your Spirit, grant us Christian communities which are alive, fervent and joyous, which are fonts of fraternal life, and which nurture in the young the desire to consecrate themselves to you and to the work of evangelisation. Sustain these communities in their commitment to offer appropriate vocational catechesis and ways of proceeding towards each one’s particular consecration. Grant the wisdom needed for vocational discernment, so that in all things the greatness of your merciful love may shine forth. May Mary, Mother and guide of Jesus, intercede for each Christian community, so that, made fruitful by the Holy Spirit, it may be a source of true vocations for the service of the holy People of God.”
