Online Workshop

Parish Vocation Ministry

The workshop will re-ignite our focus on vocations — to marriage, priesthood, and religious life — which flow from our baptismal call to discipleship. Practically speaking, the workshop will train and equip you to create a parish-based Vocation Ministry that will educate and inspire adults and young people to discern God’s will in their lives.

The workshop provided practical steps to address a pressing need in our diocese. The wide gamut of possibilities allows large and small parishes to DO something. Rhonda is good at responding to questions and has lots of practical experience, both positive and negative.

What is Vocation Ministry?

The main mission of any Vocation Ministry should be to help all parishioners discern God’s will in their lives regardless of the vocation—to call all people to holiness. If a ministry focuses on this goal, over time vocations will increase, including more seminarians, religious men and women in formation, and holier marriages.

We all know that we need more priests, religious sisters and brothers, and holy marriages. What can you do at your parish? Start a Vocation Ministry that creates a culture of vocations where the Holy Spirit can speak to parishioners. Pray for vocations!
