Spiritual Support for Vocation Directors
The job of a Vocation Director can be very demanding. In addition to his vocation director duties, one Vocation Director may be serving at the Newman Center as the associate pastor ministering to young adults and providing support at another parish. Another may be a half-time Director with no secretary to provide him with administrative assistance. The pressure is great. Some Vocation Directors have people tell them that vocations is their job and offer no help, all at a time when the number of priests is in decline and the need for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life is at an all-time high.
So, our Vocation Directors need our prayers, and since this is part of our Serra mission, we invite all members of the Serra Club of West Omaha, including our partners and supporters, to join us in praying for our Vocation Directors. This is the very best gift we can give them.
What does this spiritual support look like? Simply volunteer to sign up and pray for each of the three vocations directors assigned to the Serra Club of West Omaha:
- Rev. Scott Schilmoeller, Vocations Director - Archdiocese of Omaha, NE
- Rev. Jason Parzynski, Vocations Director - Diocese of Trenton, NJ
- Rev. Jack Reichardt, Vocations Director - Diocese of Rockford, IL
Pray for our Vocation Directors by name for one hour each week. Each person on the prayer team should choose one day of the week to pray so these Vocation Directors have someone praying for them every day. This prayer program is modeled after the Seven Sisters Apostolate praying for priests.
Mass is the most efficacious prayer, so we encourage you to offer your Mass and Holy Communion for these Vocation Directors as a meaningful prayer for them. You can complete the hour with a beautiful Rosary for Vocations Directors or spend time praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament. A holy hour in Adoration is indeed a powerful prayer. Find additional prayers here.
If you have any questions, please contact the Serra Club of West Omaha and we will have our Seven Serran Prayer Team Leaders contact you. Learn more about out Serra Club here.
