The Hunt for Seminarians

This weekend marks opening weekend of pheasant hunting in South Dakota!  A couple weeks ago, Western South Dakota Catholic Foundation and St. Hubert’s Hideaway sponsored the Annual Bishop’s Hunt for Seminarians.   It was a great success.  Thank you to all who organized the event, purchased raffle tickets, and attended the event.  And remember, you too, can hunt for seminarians by praying for vocations:

Heavenly Father,

We beg you for an increase

in religious vocations

and holy marriages

in the Diocese of Rapid City.


Look upon us with favor

and choose from our homes

those who are needed

 for your work.


Send your Spirit to strengthen us

and give us open hearts and minds

ready to say “Yes” when you call.


Help our parishes and families

encourage vocations to the priesthood,

diaconate and consecrated life.


We commend our prayers to our Patroness,

Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Through Christ Our Lord.
