To Bless Our Callings: Prayers, Poems, and Hymns to Celebrate Vocation

To Bless Our Callings: Prayers, Poems, and Hymns to Celebrate Vocation is an ecumenical collection of prayers, blessings, poetry, and sacred song from diverse traditions.

I wrote this book as part of my theological work with the Collegeville Institute Seminars. You can read more in an interview here.

  • includes over 200 prayers from Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and non-denominational traditions
  • more than 25 hymns on vocation, including “A Hymn of Calling”
  • blessings for milestone moments and vocational transitions across the lifespan – in childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and middle, later, and older adulthood
  • prayers for traditional professions and common occupations—from nurses and bankers to truck drivers and janitors
  • poems for personal reflection or use in ministry

To Bless Our Callings is a perfect resource for catechists, musicians, worship leaders, spiritual directors, retreat leaders, campus ministers, and chaplains – or for your own prayerful reflection. Check out a free excerpt here!

You can buy the book in hardcover, paperback, and ebook from Wipf & Stock or Amazon.


Laura Fanucci’s book is a theological, spiritual, and liturgical gem. Filled with insight into how callings relate to the stages of life, paid and unpaid work and the professions, and the liturgical year, it provides a comprehensive and eminently usable resource for pastors, religious leaders, and anyone who wants to relate their faith to every aspect of human life.

– Douglas Schuurman, Professor of Religion at St. Olaf College and author of Vocation: Discerning Our Callings in Life
