Be Not Afraid - Engage For Christ

The Vigil Project

The VIGIL Project is a community of artists, musicians, and filmmakers that produce multimedia resources for an authentic encounter with God and growth in prayer. 

April 4th – May 23rd

We are a pilgrim Church. We are on a journey marked by distinct liturgical seasons… We’re helping to restore devotional prayer in the Catholic Church that deepens participation in the Sacraments and liturgical seasons. At the heart of this restoration is an invitation to sing. We make music for the Catholic journey.

“The mission of The Ministry of The Wild Goose is to invite men and women to an encounter, or a renewed encounter, with Christ who perfectly reveals the love of the Father by the grace of the Holy Spirit…”

Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR, is a nationally known author and speaker. He also leads pilgrimages to some of the holiest sites in the world. He spends much of his time helping others come to know God’s love for them through preaching, writing, CDs, and other spiritual outreaches. Father Dave’s books include Spiritual Freedom: God’s Life Changing Gift, Hiking the Camino: 500 Miles with Jesus, Encounter Jesus: From Discovery to Discipleship and “Breath of God – Living a life led by the Holy Spirit.” Fr. Dave has held several ministry positions at Franciscan University of Steubenville including the highly successful summer conferences program and has recently been appointed as the President of the university. Father is a member of the Sacred Heart Province of Franciscan Friars of the Third Order Regular. He has also served as the director of Franciscan Pathways, an evangelistic outreach of his Franciscan Community.


Father Dave Pivonka and the Vigil team were part of a worldwide gathering of the Universal Church to pray on the Vigil of Pentecost.  A prayer vigil invitation was sent out to everyone to pray on the eve of Pentecost to ask for the fire and the gifts of the Holy Spirit to come upon the Church in a new and powerful way.  A Vigil Guide Booklet and Novena to the Holy Spirit were provided for the Universal Church to be connected in prayer together with one voice in our own countries, communities, parishes, and homes. A central event took place in the New Orleans, LA, area at the Divine Mercy Church and included the celebration of the Holy Mass, Reconciliation, prayer, and songs of praise and worship.

For Pentecost in 2016 over 300 Pentecost vigil events took place across the globe praying for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. For Pentecost in 2017 we knew that God was calling us to do it again! He desires for people all around the world to gather on the Vigil of Pentecost with one main desire; to seek Him and his Holy Spirit. Whether done in your home with just you and your family, your bible study, a prayer group or men’s and women’s groups, or at your parish, everyone was invited to seek the anointing of God.

“Thank you for your new openness to the Holy Spirit. What a blessing it was to pray with you all, near and far and to once again receive the Holy Spirit that strengthens us on our journey. Moving forward we must continue to pray for the Spirit to work in our lives, guide us and strengthen us, so we may be transformed.”
Fr. Dave Pivonka
