  • Villa St Joseph 445 Monk Street Cobourg, ON, K9A 2S9 Canada (map)

World Day of Prayer for Vocations is observed on "Good Shepherd Sunday" - May 7, 2017.

The purpose of this day is to publicly fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). As a climax to a prayer that is continually offered throughout the Church, it affirms the primacy of faith and grace in all that concerns vocations to the priesthood and to the consecrated life.
