What Can Others Do?
So, you feel you are not called to the Priesthood! The Lord still calls on YOU to do something for Vocations.
Your contributions in The Annual Catholic Appeal funds the education and other financial needs of the Vocations efforts of the Diocese of Tucson. By fulfilling your pledges, you are ensuring the continuance of the Sacred Order of the Priesthood and the entire Church.
There are groups of supporters in the Diocese of Tucson that you can join and assist in their efforts to promote and fund Vocations activities. These include: the Padre Kino Vocations Ministry, Catholic Daughters of America and the Knights of Columbus, among many.
Prayer and the Eucharist is the lifeblood of Vocations efforts everywhere. Please pray for our seminarians in your homes, church groups and, most importantly, in your parishes. Pray for their continuing conversion, perseverance in their studies and formation, courage to face challenges and to remain focused on their Vocation to the Priesthood. A seminarian lives for mail from home and would love to receive your written encouragement and prayers. Please write to them!
