Vocation Awareness Week

Vocation Awareness Week

During the week of November 7-13, 2021, the nation and our diocese will once again celebrate Vocation Awareness Week. The theme of the diocesan celebration this year is “Finish the Race.” (2 Timothy 4:7) A vocation is not a sprint, it’s a marathon, and we need the Lord’s strength every day of our lives to persevere in our discernment, our prayer, our calling, and our service to God and others,

Sometimes it seems like the challenges of life and the world never end, but the finish line is before us and we keep running so that we can say with St. Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

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