SOS Awards (Support Our Seminarians)
To recognize those councils that meet or exceed Support Our Seminarians $1 per member goal during the year, the State Council provides certificates and various size plaques. The appropriate SOS Award level is determined by the Vocations Chairman with assistance from the State Treasurer. Due to the timing of this program, the awards are given to the District Deputies at their July Organizational Meeting for later distribution to the individual councils. Although the original donation of SOS funds to the State Treasurer should be accompanied by the IN-SOS1 form (found later in the Program Guide), there is no additional application form to submit for the SOS Award, as qualification is strictly by the numbers.
Fr. McGivney State Vocations Award
This award recognizes the one council program or event that is considered the best in supporting and/or promoting religious vocations. Councils should use form IN-FMV1 found later in the Program Guide to submit only one entry to the state vocations chairman and copy the state faith director by February 28th. Include photographs as well as printed media to help portray the character of your project.
Pray, hope and don’t worry!

Prayer for Vocations
GOD OUR FATHER, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son's Kingdom as priests,
deacons, and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit to help others to respond generously and courageously to
your call. May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth and young adults. Through our Lord
Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
