You are invited to join us as our diocese unites our hearts and voices in praying for vocations!
Your Son told us to ask You
to send workers into the harvest.
Bless our beloved Diocese of Gaylord with:
holy priests and seminarians who radiate Your love;
zealous religious who imitate Your Son's poverty, chastity and obedience;
devoted deacons who inspire us to ever greater service;
faithful husbands and wives who reflect Christ's love for His spouse, the Church;
and single men and women who love You above all else.
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel,
open the hearts of those who have yet to discern their calling
to the still whisper of Your voice
and the transforming power of Your grace.
Send Your Holy Spirit to help us recognize Your will
and embrace it in loving trust.
As we each strive to live out our vocation,
may our humble efforts proclaim Your greatness
and secure this local Church on the firm foundation that is
Written by the Most Rev. Bishop Bernard Hebda
