Promoting Vocations

For over 450 years, Jesuit priests and brothers have experienced an amazing journey in serving the Church in new and unexpected ways.  Men on the move; are expected to do anything or go anywhere to help people experience Jesus Christ in their daily lives.  The faithful service of all Jesuits at the school had helped to form young Christian men who have been called to the priesthood to exercise generosity and compassion towards others as a way of life.  Some of these “Men for Others” have also returned to the school, where they have continued to fulfill their commitment to Jesus Christ by educating the next generation of alumni. 

Belen Jesuit is a member of the Society of Jesus Caribbean Province, which consists of the sections of Miami, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, and Guyana.

We encourage you to pray daily for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life. 
Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.

  • A Prayer for Vocations

    Father, in every generation you provide
    ministers of Christ and the Church.
    We come before you now, asking that you
    call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese
    in the ministerial priesthood.
    Give us priests who will lead and guide
    your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament.
    Bless us with priestly vocations
    so that we can continue to be a truly
    Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship
    of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
    Raise up, we pray, men who are generous
    in their service, willing to offer their lives
    and all their gifs for your greater glory
    and for the good of your people.
    We make our prayer in the presence and power of
    the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
  • Oración por las vocaciones sacerdotales

    Padre Celestial, en cada generación tú regalas
    a tu Iglesia nuevos ministros de Cristo.
    Nos ponemos en tu presencia para pedirte
    que llames a más hombres al servicio de
    nuestra Arquidiócesis en el sacerdocio ministerial.
    Danos sacerdotes que puedan mostrar el camino
    y guiar a tu pueblo santo reunido por la Palabra
    y los Sacramentos.
    Bendícenos con vocaciones sacerdotales
    que nos ayuden a seguir siendo verdaderamente
    una Iglesia Eucarística, fortalecida en
    nuestro discipulado de Jesucristo tu Único Hijo.
    Concédenos, te lo pedimos, hombres que sean
    generosos en el servicio, deseosos de ofrecer sus
    vidas y todos sus dones para tu mayor gloria
    y para el bien de tu pueblo.
    Te lo pedimos Padre en la presencia poderosa
    del Espíritu Santo y en el nombre de Jesucristo
    Nuestro Señor. Amén.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
