As a parishioner:
- Pray: Of all the ways we can work towards the increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life, prayer is without doubt the most essential. Make a commitment to pray for this intention every day. Regular attendance at Mass is also a fundamental aspect of our faith that strengthens the bonds of faith.
- Show a love of your faith: By showing that you love and value your faith, you provide a powerful witness as to the importance of living out your vocation with commitment as the Lord intended.
- Serve in parish ministry: Jesus asks each one of us to live a life of service. Your service in the parish as a minister of the Word or Holy Communion, on the parish pastoral council or in any way in your local church helps foster an environment that nurtures religious and priestly vocations.
- Friendship with priests and religious: Healthy relationships help to foster awareness, communication and respect for the lifestyle and needs of each person.
