Diocesan Prayer for Vocations
Lord Jesus Christ, gentle shepherd, you know your sheep, and you know how to reach their hearts. Give to the people of the diocese of Derry hearts that are open to the call of the Holy Spirit. Speak to the hearts of the faithful men and women of our diocese, that they may hear your call to follow you and serve your people as priests, consecrated religious and consecrated virgins. Awaken in them the courage to answer: “Here I am, Lord. Send me.” St. Eugene, pray for us. St. Columba, pray for us. St. John Vianney, pray for us.

‘Oh, Most Beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendour of Heaven. Oh, Blessed Mother of the Son of God; Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity.
Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me you are my Mother.
Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succour me in my necessity, (mention your request).
There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee, (3 times). Holy Mary, I place this prayer in your hands,’ (3 times). Amen.
