Commitment to Religious Vocations

La vocation de saint Pierre et de saint André by Federico Barocci

O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, grant we beseech You through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, Saint Joseph, her spouse, Saint Junipero Serra, and all the saints, an increase of laborers for your Church, fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls, through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever.


In keeping with the apostolic mission of the Holy Catholic Church, the community of St. Thomas Aquinas invites you to join a parish wide effort to increase the number of priestly and religious vocations from our parish and the Diocese of Dallas through prayer. It’s simple—just join the “31” club. Unlike any club you know of there are no dues, no meetings, no committees, just a personal pledge by you to attend Mass one extra day per month and pray for an increase in religious vocations. Pick any day of the month from the first to the thirty first. Choose a date easy to remember, the day of your birthday for example, the day you were married. Should you miss your day for any reason, go the next day or the next week. This is your personal commitment—there are no “31 Club police” to check on your attendance. The commitment is simply between you and God.
