Vocations Sunday

2021-04-16T13:58:46-04:00

The Fourth Sunday (also known as Good Shepherd Sunday) of Easter occurs three weeks after the celebration of Easter. This year, that date is April 25, 2021. In 1964, Pope Paul VI established this day as a World Day of Prayer for Vocations, which we call Vocations Sunday in the Catholic Church.

Understanding Your Vocation In Life

2021-01-12T12:58:07-05:00

God has called all of His children to a particular vocation in their lives. Everyone has a different calling from God, and it will be presented to you in different ways. We may have many callings, and there are ways you can realize what your vocation is in life.    One man might have a calling to marriage and/or a certain profession. Another man might have a calling to religious life. As Catholics, we believe everything we are called to do in life is based on God’s will. Following God’s plan for us leads us to eternal life in Heaven. We [...]

Is God Calling You To Religious Life of Vocation?

2023-02-18T20:26:24-05:00

In life, we are all called to a vocation to fulfill our lives. Some of us may be called to pursue teaching, becoming a doctor or the arts. Some of us receive a call from God to religious life. When God calls you, how will you know? The call from God might start as a whisper that grows louder and more persistent each day. The first telltale sign may be a strong desire towards religious life. In particular, those who feel pulled to the Catholic priesthood will want to be ordained and live out their vocation to God.  If you [...]
