Vocations

Vocations  

Hello, I am Fr. Craig Cameron and I would like to welcome you to the Diocesan Vocations Webpage. It is my great privilege to represent the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth in promoting young men to the vocation of priesthood.

If you would like to discuss your consideration of a vocation to the priesthood, please email me: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

It is my hope and prayer that this Year of Faith will be filled with grace for our Archdiocese and it will lead to an increased awareness of the gift of the priesthood to our Church and that it will encourage an openness for men to a vocation to the priesthood in our diocese.

Vocation Prayers

  • Lord, my God and my loving Father, you have made me to know you,
    to love you, to serve you, and thereby to find and to fulfill myself.
    I know that you are in all things, and that every path can lead me to you.
    But of them all, there is one especially by which you want me to come to you.
    Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me:
    into my mind, to show me what you want of me; into my heart,
    to give me the determination to do it, and to do it with all my love,
    with all my mind, and with all my strength right to the end.

    Amen

    St. John Vianney 352x600 72

    Almighty and Eternal God, You have poured out on your priests the blessing of the Holy Spirit
    as they share in the priesthood of Christ your Son. We praise You for giving this gift to Your Church.

    Through Your priests, Your people are sanctified and invited into the mysteries of Christ. We thank You for their generous service. Grant to your priests the gift of joy in ministry and life.
    Renew them each day in their consecrationfor the salvation of the world.

    Lord, hear our prayers for those You are calling into Your service now.
    Bless them with an openness to Your will and a love for Your holy people.

    May all your priests be renewed in holiness through the example of your servant St. John Vianney.
    Filled with the fire of your love, may they do all for your greater glory.

    We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

    Amen.
