Diocese of Belleville Prayer for Vocations
Gracious God, You have called us through Baptism to discipleship, believing in your Son, Jesus Christ, who has sent us to bring the Good News of salvation to the world. We pray to you, asking that you grant us more priests and religious who will help us build up your Church in the Diocese of Belleville and the world. Stir up the grace of the religious vocation in the hearts of many of our youth. Grant to them the willingness and generosity to give of themselves in service to our Lord Jesus and his people. May a new generation of priests, deacons, sisters and brothers be a sign of your presence among us. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
We the parishioners of St. John the Baptist,
brothers and sisters in Christ, accept as our mission:
† to know our faith and share it with others,
† to continue to grow spiritually with respect for the sacraments,
† to celebrate the liturgy and the Holy Eucharist as the center of our Christian life,
† to live by truth and love,
† to serve those in need, to teach by example, and thereby strengthen and inspire our Parish family in accordance with the Roman Catholic Church

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.
