“Remember these men and women in your daily prayers…”
The Vocation Prayer Calendar (VPC) began as a joint effort of the Serra Club of DuPage County, the Diocese of Joliet Vocation Office and the Joliet Area Vocation Association (JAVA). In December 2006 the first edition of the VPC (January – April 2007) was emailed to all the parishes and religious communities in the diocese.
We encourage parishes and religious communities to print and fold the VPC and for distribution. Parishes may also consider including the VPC names in their weekly bulletins and in their daily Prayers of the Faithful.
Latest edition: Sept2014-Dec2014
Priests, women and men religious, deacons, seminarians and religious in formation serving in the Diocese of Joliet are remembered by name in the VPC. Each name appears at least once during the year. The VPC has three editions each year: January – April, May – August and September – December.
It is our hope that the calendar will be shared throughout the diocese so that these men and women will be remembered in our daily prayers. The VPC can easily accompany a personal prayer book or bible, and many parishes print the VPC names in their weekly bulletins.
