This year marks the the 54th anniversary of World Day of Prayer for Vocations, which was instituted by Pope Paul VI during the Second Vatican Council. The day is set aside as a day for the entire Church to renew its commitment to pray for and foster religious and priestly vocations for the sake of furthering the mission of Jesus Christ.
