Thank you for welcoming the Monstrance for Vocation in your parish!
Here you will find everything you need during it's stay with you.


Thank you for your willingness to participate in this Archdiocesan project to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life!

At the Chrism Mass on Thursday, March 21, 2013, J. Peter Sartain, Archbishop of Seattle, blessed the Monstrance for Vocations.
