National Vocations Awareness Week (NVAW) provides an opportunity for all Australian dioceses,  parishes, schools, religious communities, youth and campus ministers, and other Catholic organisations, to focus at the same time on the 'call to holiness' (i.e. the Christian Vocation) that arises from our Baptism, and thus to further foster a Vocations Culture across Australia.

General Prayer for Vocations


Father, help all people to know their vocation in life, and assist them to prepare for it.


 For your glory, and for the service of your people, call many to be Priests and Religious.


 Give those whom you call the grace to respond generously and persevere faithfully.


Mary, Mother of the Church, show your care for the body of Christ, encourage many vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
