Diocese of Victoria, TX

I knew this spring would be crazy busy for vocations and my family. With two teenagers, each involved in a variety of activities, I figured I would be treading water to keep afloat! Thankfully, the graces keep flowing.

Rhonda with Father Cahill.I am so energized when I meet parishioners who hear the message of Vocation Ministry and take it back to their parishes. It’s even more exciting to speak at a meeting of diocesan priests, since, as we know, sometimes our priests are not on the vocation bandwagon.

In spring of 2015, the Pope named a former St. Cecilia Catholic School Graduate, Fr. Brendan Cahill, as the Bishop of the Diocese of Victoria. We were thrilled, and celebrated with a send-off Mass followed by a wonderful congratulations reception. What a blessing!

Bishop Cahill asked me to present to his diocese, so earlier this month I gave a presentation to the priests of Victoria. Afterward, I spoke to the Serra Club of Victoria, some Incarnate Word sisters, and youth ministers. They could not have been more receptive to the idea of creating a culture of vocations at their parishes. I sold every book I brought with me, over 100 of them!

I look forward to going back in the fall to speak at their catechetical conference to spread the word further! God bless you, Bishop Cahill and the Serrans of Victoria!
