This year, the Office of Vocations has chosen as its theme, “Pray to the Lord of the Harvest,” a direct reference to the words of Jesus telling his disciples, “The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest” (Lk 10:2). Jesus does not make this as a suggestion, but rather a command that we ask, or pray “to the master of the harvest” for more laborers.

To foster vocations, we can create many types of events — all important and helpful in their own right — but the words of Jesus are so clear that we are to pray for more laborers for the harvest. To this end, the Office of Vocations is sponsoring a Holy Hour at 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. Every month, it will be held at a different parish in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and the sole intention is to bring the faithful together specifically to beg the Lord to send us more workers for the harvest — those who are called to become priests, deacons, consecrated men and consecrated women — that they would step forward to lay down their entire lives to serve the Church.

These Holy Hours will take place throughout the archdiocese. Please consider attending one and invite others to do the same. For more information, visit 10000vocations.org.
