Praying, encouraging, and supporting vocations is not just one person’s responsibility but the responsibility of all of the Christian faithful. In his message for the 2016 World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis said that the Church becomes the home and the family where vocations are born. Below are some prayer resources that can be downloaded and/or printed for your use at home and in church. We also encourage you to follow the Office of Vocations Facebook page.

Offering Financial Support
The annual formation costs of our seminarians are paid for by the Archdiocese of San Francisco and include expenses such as tuition, health insurance, and books. These costs exceed $40,000 annually per seminarian. The Archdiocese is always looking for benefactors to sponsor the formation costs of the men who will serve as our future parish priests. If you are interested in sponsoring a seminarian’s formation, please contact the Office of Development at Development@sfarch.org or 415-614-5580.
