Foster a Vocation-Producing Parish

 

Our Founder Rhonda Gruenewald explains what a priest can do to be a vocation promoter in his own parish.

 

What can you do?

  • Speak about vocations more often.
  • Share your vocation testimony.
  • Promote vocation events planned by the ministry.
  • Share a joyful and authentic example of the priesthood.
  • Invite youth to consider a vocation to the priesthood or religious life.
  • Start a vocation ministry.

 

Steps to forming a vocation ministry in education:

 

Step 1- Meet with principle/parish catechetical leader.

 

Step 2- Give principle/parish catechetical leader a Vocation Calendar to incorporate.

Step 3- Ask principle/parish catechetical leader to form a small vocation ministry/committee made up of teachers and parents.

 

Step 4- Buy a copy of The Harvest: A Guide to Vocation Ministry in Education for each member of the ministry. 

 

Step 5- Provide support when needed and were possible for this new ministry.

  • Visit classrooms
  • Interact with students at recess/lunch/carpool
  • Organize religious sisters/seminarians/priests to visit 

 

Step 6- Ask the principle/parish catechetical leader to contact Rhonda (rhonda@vocationministry.com) for a 1-hour workshop for educations either virtually or in person.
