Pray With Us

Your prayers are very important to our community at St. Joseph Seminary. Here are some ways you can join in our mission through prayer:

Novena to the Holy Spirit for Vocations

The Office of Vocations has developed a Novena to the Holy Spirit for Vocations to Priesthood & Religious Life.  This booklet gives you 9 days of prayer devoted to praying to the Holy Spirit for vocations.  We especially like this Novena during the 9 days leading up to a Come & See Weekend.  It can be downloaded for free by clicking here: Novena to the Holy Spirit for Vocations.pdf

Seminarian Prayer Calendar

There are currently 30 men from 10 dioceses in various stages of formation at St. Joseph Seminary. Each one needs our prayerful support as he continues on his journey of discernment. Download the Vocations Daily Calendar to help you pray every day of the month for individual seminarians. Printed copies are also available at the seminary or Archdiocese of Edmonton offices.

The 2023-24 Prayer Calendar is available through your parish. Copies of the Prayer Calendar can be printed by clicking on:

When printing, remember to specify under Page Scaling: “Shrink to Printable Area” so it can also be printed on letter size paper.

Professionally printed copies: If your parish/youth group/CWL council/Knights of Columbus council/school/prayer group would like to order professionally printed calendars, please contact Cathy at the seminary: secretary@stjoseph-seminary.com.
