The group coordinates celebrations of the main vocation events of the liturgical year: Priesthood Sunday, Vocations Awareness Week, World Day for Consecrated Life and World Day of Prayer for Vocations.
Ways to pray for vocations used by the Team include the Traveling Crucifix, which is in a kit containing prayers and other aids focusing on vocations and prayer. Children are encouraged to pray to know their vocation through the Traveling Crucifix program in the school (Vocations include priesthood, consecrated life, marriage and the single life. God has a vocation for everyone of us).
The 31 Club is a “club” with no meetings or dues, simply pick a date of the month and offer Mass, Adoration or other prayers on that day especially for vocations. Both the Diocesan Vocation Office and Serra Clubs provide materials for the Team. For more info, please contact Gary & Jane Lyons.
