Matthew 9 Mission

The Office of Vocations invites you to be a part of the Matthew 9 Mission.  The Matthew 9 Mission is a response to Christ’s call to pray for vocations.  Participants will choose at least one day a month to pray the Rosary specifically for vocations to priesthood.

More than one person may pray on a particular day and you may choose more than one day a month to pray.  The goal is to have someone in all 78 parishes in the Diocese of Owensboro praying the Rosary for vocations to priesthood every day of the year.
