The US Catholic bishops have a new website to promote vocations. For Your Vocation includes:

  • Discernment resources for men and women
  • Tools that will help families promote a vocation culture within the home
  • You’ll also find videos of priests and religious men and women  giving witness to their vocations and testimonies from family members.

Vocation – Discerning God’s Call: “Pray, Listen, Act, Repeat!” Learn about four simple steps to help young people discerning a vocation: “Pray, Listen, Act, Repeat!” Watch the three (3) minute video on Gloria TV

What Can You Do To Promote Vocations? PRAY for the Lord to send more workers for the vineyard to serve the Church. INVITE young men and women to consider a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Young people respond to invitations. LOVE those priests and religious who serve you. There is no greater recruitment model than someone who is supported and affirmed. LIVE your own vocation to the utmost.

Vocation Awareness Take some time this week to talk with the young people you know about the importance of their Baptismal vocation. Each person, by virtue of their Baptism is called to serve God and be a witness for Jesus. Such awareness lays the foundation for a person to consider that God might be calling them even further into a career of service to the Church through priesthood, religious life or professional lay ministry.
