CLASSROOM CRUCIFIX FOR VOCATIONS
The School Traveling Crucifix Program provides students with a significant focal point for daily prayer in the classroom—and for conversation about the importance of vocations.
A beautiful crucifix is selected to “travel” to different classrooms in a school, with each class committing to host the crucifix for one week and to pray daily for vocations.
This is a wonderful—and easy-to-organize—way to involve students in praying for vocations, and to unite the school in perpetual prayer for priests and consecrated life. This program and a similar one for parishes and dioceses have enjoyed growing popularity around the country.
Serra International, the Global global lay vocations apostolate, has lots of information about the program on their Serra Spark website.
Our local Serra Clubs have provided traveling crucifixes to all our Catholic grade schools. If you are interested in additional support in implementing this program, contact one of our Serra Clubs.
Here are more resources for the classroom, especially helpful during National Vocation Awareness Week, which is the first full week in November each year.
