At our baptism we are given many gifts.  The gifts of Faith, Hope, and Love.  The gift of belonging to God and the Church.  The gift of our Vocation.  Each of us is called to love God and bear witness to His love for each of us.  How we do this varies from person to person.  We each have a small "v" vocation, in how we serve the Lord day in and day out.  We also have a captical "V" Vocation, in being called to a particular way of life.  Most are called to Holy Matrimony.  Some are called to Holy Orders.  Others are called in a particular way to Religious and Consecrated Life, which has various forms as well.  Some are called to support these vocations through Holy Single Life.  Discerning what our Vocation is can be challenging, but we don't have to, nor can we do it alone.  This page offers various resources to help you in your discernment process.  If you would like to talk to someone about vocation discernment feel free to reach out to Fr. Jason, Irene, or someone at the diocese in the Vocation Office.

Join the "31 Club."  As a parish we are comitted to praying for an increase in holy vocations.  Sign-up to pray one day each month. 

Sign-up to Host the "Traveling Chalice."  Bring home a Chalice to remind you to pray for Vocations for the entire week.  The process for hosting the Chalice is:  Father will give you the Chalice at the Mass you indicate you will attend, you place the Sacred Vessel somewhere it will remind you to pray for Vocations, pray the included prayer card daily, and finally return it by 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at the end of the week.
