The Union of Prayer for Vocations (UPV) was founded by Saint Hannibal Mary Di Francia and was approved on December 8, 1900 by the Archbishop of Messina, Italy, Mons. Letterio D’Arrigo. In the Philippines, the UPV was approved by H.E. Jaime Cardinal Sin on November 6, 1985.

The goal of the UPV is to pray for numerous and holy Vocations and to propagate this prayer everywhere according to the command of Jesus: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest” (Mt. 9:38; Lk. 10:2).

Hence, the members of the UPV commit themselves to:

  • Pray daily for obtaining “good laborers” to the Church, especially priests and religious, and for their perseverance.
  • Offer daily works, activities, joys, sufferings, sacrifices for the same purpose.
  • Spread this Prayer for Vocations  commanded by Jesus in their respective places of work and communities.
  • Become aware of their personal Christian Vocation by prayer and involvement in parish activities related to the apostolate for Vocations.

Everybody, both religious and lay people, desiring to be a member of the Union of Prayer for Vocations, can send their application and address to:
