The mission of our Vocation Ministry is to foster an atmosphere where all people can hear and respond to God’s call to the
Priesthood, Religious Life (Sisters & Brothers), Permanent Deaconate, Lay Ministry, as well as Married and Single vocations.
Through prayer, education and encouragement we will help people recognize their calling.

 “Vocations are not the result of planning but an encounter with God that changes your life.”  ~ Pope Francis
