Shepherds of Hope Campaign Prayer

Father, all-powerful and ever-living God
you are the eternal shepherd
who never leaves his flock untended.

Through the ministry of your priests
you continue the work of salvation.

We pray for an increase of vocations to
the priesthood and religious life.

We pray for our seminarians;
that they will respond generously to your call.

We pray for our priests in active ministry;
that they will be faithful and joyful shepherds of hope.

And we pray for our senior priests who have dedicated
their lives to the service of your people;
May they enjoy peace and security all the days of their lives.

Father, grant your blessing to the
Shepherds of Hope Campaign.

Through this important work of our Church
help us to encourage our seminarians
and support our senior priests.

May your people respond with generous and loving hearts,
always mindful of the gifts they themselves have received.

All of this we ask through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
