Our new book, The Harvest: A Guide to Vocation Ministry in Education,

is available for orders now!

Our priests are being called into great heroic action by offering the sacraments, finding creative ways to serve parishioners, and maintaining less than full churches with limited staff support. In response, the Houston-based Vocation Ministry launches its annual “Uplift Your Priest” campaign on the Monday after the 2nd Sunday of Easter. The campaign is designed to inspire the laity to support and encourage their priests. We need to let our clergy know that their people recognize their daily sacrifices, especially after Lent and Easter.
