Two events occur in April which call us to pray for vocations. The feast of St Peter Chanel falls on 28th April. For nine days prior to his feast Marists throughout the world unite in praying for vocations to the Marist Family.
This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of Paul VI’s instituting a day of worldwide prayer to God asking him to continue to send workers into the vineyard (cf Mt 9:38). In 2013 World Day of Prayer for Vocations falls on Sunday 21st April. This day also provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our own vocation and renew our commitment.
