Vocation Days

The work of promoting vocations at a parish will often revolve around the days that we usually promote vocations. Don’t worry if you cannot execute an activity on the exact day. Most parishioners have no idea that these days exist, so they will not know if you have to hold an event the week after its official date. Also, don’t forget to start small! You may decide to make announcements and post a blurb in the bulletin only for some of these dates. Pick the ones that your ministry and parish are ready for and the ones you feel will be most impactful. Just do something!
