“… Know the God of your father, and serve Him with a single mind and willing heart; for the Lord searches every mind, and understands every plan and thought.” 1 Chronicles 28: 9

What is a Vocation?

God calls us to service in many ways.

Discernment is the process through which we can hear, understand, and embrace God’s call for us. Our diocese offers services, programs, and referrals to help discern or follow God’s call.

Those who serve our diocese in the fulfillment of God’s call are greatly appreciated for the diversity and volume of work they do at the parish, deanery, and diocesan levels. Our Priest Vocation Committee supports the exploration and journey of young men in our diocese to the priesthood. Our Vocation Awareness and Appreciation Committee honors promote and support the various vocations at work in our diocese.
