Priesthood Cards were started with a three-fold mission in mind...
1. INCREASE PRAYERS FOR OUR PRIESTS.
By introducing people to the person behind the vocation, there is a
greater connection in prayer. The cards serve as a visual reminder to
pray for priests.
2. INCREASE VOCATIONS.
When young men discover that priests are ordinary people, with a love for their vocation, with hobbies, interests, and even pets, they are more likely to visualize themselves in that role. There is no cookie cutter priest; each priest is a unique individual – an ordinary man who has answered an extraordinary call from God.
By planting a seed for a vocation when someone is young, they are more likely to remain open to the possibility of a vocation to the priesthood.
3. RAISE FUNDS.
So far this project has donated over $20,000 to the Omaha Archdiocesan Seminarian Fund.
