Denver, Colorado, Oct. 17, 2010 – A team of Regnum Christi women helped promote vocations last week in the Archdiocese of Denver.

The Office of Vocations for the archdiocese sponsored its inaugural “Run 4 Vocations” on October 17, 2010.   The marathon relay event involved teams of four running in the 26.2 mile Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon.  Though the RC women finished 100th in the women’s division, winning the race was not the goal.

Runners were asked to get prayer pledges for their participation. The “RC Runners” team, including consecrated women Tammy Grady and Yvonne Fontaine and RC members Karen Wilhoite and Mary Sarah Ivers, obtained pledges of 46 Masses offered by a priest, 178 Eucharistic holy hours, 347 Rosaries, 91 Divine Mercy chaplets, 7 novenas, 226 personal Mass intentions, 35 days of fasting, 374 general prayers, and 101 people praying.

In total, the Denver Archdiocese had 810 people pledge prayers, 565 Eucharistic holy hours, 1619 rosaries, 496 Divine Mercy chaplets, 47 novenas, 852 personal Mass intentions, 371 days of fasting, and 504 general prayers. Also, 232 Masses were offered by a priest.

The Office of Priestly Vocations is already seeing “answers to these prayers,” according to an article in the Denver Catholic Register.

“I currently have eight guys in application for seminary a year from now,” Father Jim Crisman said. “I’ve never seen that. The most I’ve ever seen, by Christmas, is two guys in application, and that was last year.”
