“I often think that prayer ~ the unum necessarium ~ is the one aspect of vocations work which we tend to forget or to undervalue!”

Invisible Monastery is a worldwide community of people committed to praying for vocations. Our goal is to attract enough members to pray for vocations 24 hours a day in every diocese.


Members of Invisible Monastery:

  • Pledge to pray daily or weekly for vocations
  • Choose their type of prayer—Mass intention, rosary, private prayer, etc.
  • Renew their pledge annually
  • Receive a quarterly e-newsletter with prayers, resources, and ideas for promoting vocations
  • May receive occasional communication from the diocesan Vocation Director with prayer requests or other information.

“Considering that the Eucharist is the greatest gift our Lord gives to his Church, we must ask for priests since the priesthood is a gift for the Church. We must pray insistently for this gift. We must ask for it on our knees.”

~Pope Saint John Paul II
