As Catholics, we firmly believe that God has a plan for our lives! He calls some to marriage, some to the priesthood, and others to religious life. Some remain as generous single people. Fully living our own vocations – and teaching young people how to discern God’s call – is a serious duty, but also a joyful one.
November 4-10 is National Vocation Awareness Week. During this week please pray for vocations, and pray about how God is calling you to live your vocation more deeply. Encourage the young people in your life – children, grandchildren, students and friends – to be open if God calls them to the priesthood or religious life.
