Vocation Promotion

 

Vocation Cross Program

for Youth/Young Adult Groups

 

The Vocation Cross Program is currently in full force and has been traveling throughout the diocese.  Each month a youth group accepts

the cross from another youth group and then prays for vocations for thirty days. The vocation cross which stands over 2 feet tall was made by Guilermo Vergara who is an active at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish.

 

The program started in August of 2008 with a Mass celebrated at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament by Bishop Jaime Soto. During this Mass, the relics of the Mexican Martyrs who were members of the Knights of Columbus were present on display.

 

The importance of prayer and the need for vocations is clearly recognized by the youth of the diocese. Currently over 21 parishes

or organizations have participated in

the monthly prayer program for vocations; they are as follows:

 

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament/Sacramento

Holy Rosary Parish/Woodland

Promoción Vocacional

 

Campaña de Oración con la Cruz Vocacional para grupos de jóvenes y adultos.

 

La Campaña de Oración con la Cruz Vocacional sigue en vigor y se ha estado promoviendo por toda la diócesis. Cada mes un grupo juvenil recibe la Cruz de algún otro grupo para luego, orar por la vocaciones durante 30 días. La Cruz, que mide 2 pies de altura, fue construida por Guillermo Vergara, quien es un miembro activo de la Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe.

 

La campaña dio inicio en agosto del 2008 con una Misa celebrada en la Catedral de Santísimo Sacramento y presidida por el señor Obispo Jaime Soto. En dicha Misa, estuvieron presentes los restos de los mártires mexicanos, quienes en vida formaron parte de los Caballeros de Colón.

 

Los jóvenes de la Diócesis reconocen con claridad la importancia de la oración y la necesidad de vocaciones.

De hecho, más de 21 parroquias u organizaciones parroquiales han participado en le mes de oración por las vocaciones. Estas parroquias se enlistan a continuación:
