Vocation Awareness Week

Vocation Awareness Curriculum

During the first week of November, November 3-9, 2019, the nation and our diocese will once again celebrate Vocations Awareness Week. The theme of the diocesan celebration this year is “Called For Mission.” When Jesus called the disciples, he formed them, and sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God. God doesn’t stop calling men and women in out diocese to a unique vocation, using their gifts and personality to bring God’s love to their family, to the Church, and to the world. Pope Francis often reminds us that we are all called, whatever our vocation, to be first and foremost missionary disciples.

Let us remember to pray for men and women in our diocese who are discerning their vocation and encourage them to pursue God’s call to be missionary disciples today.

The Vocation Office would like to encourage priests, deacons, faith formation and Catholic School teachers, and all Catholics to celebrate Vocation Awareness Week.
