Lord Jesus, we ask you to bless the Diocese of Camden
with an increase in vocations to the priesthood.
We pray that young men from our parishes and families will
hear your call and be both generous and courageous in their response.
May more young men serve you as priests who teach the faith, preach the Gospel,
celebrate the sacraments and make you present among us through their ministry.
Encourage them to embrace the joy-filled and fulfilling life of a diocesan priest.
May parents support priestly vocations in their families by prayer and good example.
We entrust these prayers through Mary Immaculate, our patroness,
hopeful that you will bless our diocese with more priest in the near future,
who live and reign forever and ever.
