Coalition for Church Vocations (NCCV) Native
American Outreach Project
Native Americans are often forgotten in Catholic Church vocation
resource development. The Las Casas grant allowed NCCV to develop
a Native American vocation prayer card in collaboration with
Native Americans. The new resource honors the Catholic tradition
of Native Americans. It is based on Psalm 139:24 “Lead
me in the ancient paths.” Sister Deborah Bomyea, OP (Sinsinawa
/ Mohawk) authored the prayer and Gus Antone (Tohonno O’odham)
is the artist.
This prayer card is 2-color and is available in packages of 100
from NCCV (call 773.955.5453). The complete text is posted on the NCCV
“O Great Spirit, you know my heart.
Guide me as I walk life’s journey.
Help me to know the path I am to walk.”
