.- A monstrance, blessed by Pope John Paul II specifically to encourage prayer for vocations, will make a three-day stop at Our Lady of Fatima Conference next month. The will be in Salt Lake City, Utah, May 6-8. This monstrance is one of six, which the late Pope blessed Nov. 24, 2004 to launch adoration for vocations on an international scale during this Year of the Eucharist.

"This is our opportunity to be in solidarity with the world in praying for vocations," said Fr. Edward Burns, executive director of the Secretariat for Vocations and Priestly Formation for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Fr. Joseph Marcello of the Diocese of Salt Lake City said: “Many parishioners in the diocese have commented that they feel, on some level, a personal connection with the Holy Father, and they are able to respond personally to his invitation to deepen their appreciation for the gift of the Eucharist this year, while asking the Lord to send priestly vocations to our diocese.”

One monstrance was blessed for each of the following six regions: the United States and Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific.
