VOCATIONS BEGIN WITH PRAYER
"BEHIND AND BEFORE EVERY VOCATION ... IS THE STRONG AND INTENSE PRAYER OF A SOMEONE: A GRANDMOTHER, A GRANDFATHER, A COMMUNITY..."
THE SACRED HEART SOCIETY FOR VOCATIONS
The Church has been around for over 2000 years and the one thing that has proven to work time and again is the power of prayer. The Sacred Heart of Jesus was a source of prayer from the earliest moments of the Church. Prayerfully contemplated and discussed by the early Fathers of the Church, a very common devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus developed throughout history. Our Cathedral Basilica in Newark bears the same name, where men are ordained priests for the Archdiocese each May.
It is in this spirit that we introduce to you The Sacred Heart Society for Vocations, a ministry of the Office of Priestly Vocations in the Archdiocese of Newark. In order to become a member, we ask that you make a pledge to assist us in this ministry by praying for vocations on a regular basis. There is also the option to utilize your gifts and talents to organize a local group to foster vocations at your parish or school.
