Office of Vocations
“Be open to his voice resounding in the depths of your heart: even now his heart is speaking to your heart” – Pope Benedict XVI, Sep 18, 2010, Beatification of Cardinal Newman.
We hope the tools and resources provided on these pages inspire you to listen to the voice of Christ and to respond as he beckons. Please visit our vocation website and know of our
prayers for you. Be not afraid!
Diocesan Prayer for Vocations
We beg you for an increase in religious vocations
and holy marriages in the Diocese of Rapid City.
Look upon us with favor and choose from our homes
those who are needed for your work.
Send your spirit to strengthen us and give us
open hearts and minds ready to say “Yes” when you call.
Help our parishes and families encourage vocations to
the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life.
We commend our prayers to our Patroness,
Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
Through Christ Our Lord.
