“Prayer for Vocations”
Heavenly Father,We ask you to bless our diocese with selfless hearts that are willing to serve You, by serving Your Church. Lord Jesus raise up from our homes those called by the Father: courageous and humble men to the Priesthood, faithful people to Consecrated Life and holy men and women to the sacrament of Marriage. Holy Spirit, help us to live our universal vocation to holiness, by listening to the Father’s voice and responding with a sacrificial love. Holy Mary, Model of Vocations, teach us to hear and follow your Son. Holy Mary, Queen of Priests, sanctify our priests and obtain for us many more.Holy Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for our families and intercede for our children.

It's not too late to register for the upcoming conference "Bringing Church Home: Reimagining The Family On Mission" taking place at the Diocese on March 15-17.
Bringing Church Home: Reimagining the Family on Mission
The Amore Project helps the whole Church rediscover the family as the domestic church and the New Testament ‘oikos’ as a center for community and mission. Amore trains married couples to embrace their marriage as a sign of the gospel and a calling to minister among those who are far from God.
The theme of the 2017 conference, “Bringing Church Home: Reimagining the Family on Mission” focuses on the goal of releasing a movement of married couples who live as agents of Christ’s self-giving love. Believing that mission often arises when the people of God seek reconciliation in the broken places, the conference will help attendees seek a great awakening in homes, networks, neighborhoods and families.
The conference is a partnership and collaboration between the Diocese of Harrisburg, Mistero Grande, Truro Anglican Church, the Baptist General Association of Virginia and the Fresh Expressions Team.
