In the lead up to World Day of Prayer for Vocations, we are using social media to encourage more people to pray for vocations. To do this, we are inviting everyone to take a photo of themselves holding up a plain white card/paper with the handwritten words – “#ImPrayingForVocations” and post it on social media.
We hope that this ‘hashtag’ campaign will bring the online community together, and that through solidarity, will encourage more people to pray for vocations.
Feel free to spread the word out on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Make sure to include in your post the text #ImPrayingforVocations and a mention of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations on Sunday 12 May, 2019
The campaign will run from Monday 6 May through to Sunday 12 May.
