Worldwide Twitter Campaign for Vocations


Worldwide Twitter Campaign for Vocations:

"The world needs priests. In some dioceses, the situation is critical - almost nobody seems to answer the call to the priesthood anymore. The remedy is given by Jesus himself: “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” (Matthew 9, 37-38).

In this Year Of The Priest, join the world wide Twitter Prayer Relay for future priests. Here is how it works:

1 - Choose a day and pray specifically for future priests (you will find prayers in several languages on this website).

2 - Post a Tweet that you are praying for vocations and invite your Twitter followers to do the same. Use #futurepriests in your Tweet so we can assemble all messages related to the campaign on this website.

The goal is to have several people praying for future priests on each day of the Year of the Priest.

On this website, you will not only meet other people who are praying for vocations, but you will be able to see who you are praying for: we will post interviews with seminarians from all over the world, sharing their experiences and telling us about how they discerned the call to the priesthood."
