Father, 
You invite each one of us by name 
and ask us to follow You.
We ask that You bless Your Church
in the Archdiocese of Newark
by raising up dedicated and generous leaders 
from our families and friends
who will faithfully serve Your people
as Priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters, 
and as holy Married and Single people.
Inspire us to grow in our
relationship with You and open
our hearts to accept Your invitation.
We ask this in the name
of Jesus our Lord.  Amen

is not primarily our own decision…. 
Rather it is the response to a call and
to a call of love.”
