TRAVELING CRUCIFIX PROGRAM

We are excited to welcome the Traveling Crucifix to our school. This program brings our children together in prayer and speaks to their hearts. Our school family has received a special crucifix that will visit each of our classrooms through the program's duration. While in each classroom for one week, the crucifix will be placed in a prominent place as a focal point for prayer. Each teacher will lead their students in special prayers for vocations. Each student will also receive a special prayer card. Through our prayerful support, many people in our neighborhoods and around the world will gain the encouragement they need to answer yes to the call that Jesus places on their hearts.

Jesus as our High Priest lived a life of ministry and made the ultimate sacrifice for our salvation through His Crucifixion and Resurrection. Our primary vocation is the Universal Call to Holiness, the call to follow Jesus. Our secondary vocation is either religious life (the priesthood or in a religious community) or married life. Through prayerfully discovering, preparing for, and living out our secondary vocations, we give our lives to Jesus and fulfill our mission as His disciples. Through our Traveling Crucifix program, our students will grow in awareness of God’s call in their life and will support our family in faith.

We hope that you will share in the experience of this program. Please unite with us in prayer through your personal and family prayers for this special intention for vocations. Perhaps even place one of your crucifixes in a special place in your home with your student's special prayer card. With Jesus Christ at the center of each individual's discovery and discernment of their unique vocation, they are sure to enjoy the greatest fulfillment in life and give God great glory. God will use your encouragement and prayer to make a powerful impact on their life's journey.

We are grateful to the Detroit-Oakland Serra Club who provided the Crucifix and prayer materials for our school to participate in this program. The daily prayers are linked on the left sidebar. Please feel free to use the prayer sheet to guide your personal and family prayer for vocations. If you are interested in additional prayers, please contact our Retreat and Outreach coordinator, Mrs. Freeman (mfreeman@hncschool.com). We have small prayer books for vocations that were donated to our school community by the Serra Club as well.
