Brooklyn, NY, Parishioner Workshop

I was thrilled to be back in New York, promoting vocations. The first time I spoke in New York was the first time I spoke to parishioners about Vocation Ministry! We were at Dunwoodie Seminary in Yonkers, and I was petrified. 2 ½ years later, I have spoken in over 30 other dioceses and no … Continued

Burlington, VT, Parishioners Workshop

My heart is full as I leave the Diocese of Burlington, VT! This was my last workshop of the year, and it reminds me of my mission and why I do this work of vocations! God works through the parishioners who say yes to start a new Vocation Ministry, and he will provide a bountiful … Continued

Rockford Parishioners Workshop

Leticia and I was inspired by the hundreds of parishioners of Rockford, Illinois, who were eager to learn how to create a vocation-producing parish! We just could not believe how many people were pouring into the community center of this parish! Fr. Keith Romke, who I told you about in a previous blog, inspires me … Continued

Amarillo Parishioners Workshop

The Hundredfold Workshops in English for 52 parishioners and in Spanish for 36 parishioners were incredible! They had to keep adding tables and chairs!!! WOW! The Diocese of Amarillo has only 50,000 Catholics but covers 26,000 square miles!!!! So, to have this many people drive hours one-way to learn about promoting vocations is inspiring!

The Vocare dinner, which is a fundraising dinner for 450 people for the Diocese of Owensboro, KY. This small diocese has some wonderfully generous benefactors for their seminarians. Can I tell you that speaking to a room of 450 people is a little intimidating, to say the least!!!! Now, I love talking about vocations, and … Continued

Rockford, Illinois

One of my favorite Vocation Directors is Fr. Keith Romke from Rockford, Illinois. He is an ardent Chicago Cubs fan and Jesus fan all at the same time! His passion for life and the Church is palpable! When he asked me to speak to the priests and for Leticia and me to speak to the … Continued

Burlington, VT

I travel far and wide to speak about vocations. My travel from Houston to where the priests of Burlington, VT were gathered for their convocations was two plane rides and two-hour car ride, but boy was it beautiful! The trees were starting to turn colors! My view of the lake was spectacular, and, more importantly, … Continued

Las Cruces, NM

AUGUST 5-6, 2017 Vocation Ministry was invited to participate in the Eucharistic Congress in Las Cruces, NM and speak to the priests, as well. It was my first time to New Mexico, and I found its deserts and mountains enchanting. What was so special, besides the amazing people and food, was that Leticia Cantú Ramirez … Continued

Promotional Video Shoot

I have felt on my heart that Vocation Ministry needed a promotional video from almost the beginning. So few people know what a vocation is, so how can a Vocation Director get people to the workshop without knowing more. I don’t know how many times people show up only because “My pastor asked me to … Continued
