How can your parish celebrate National Vocation Awareness Week in a meaningful way?
The teen years are critical for shaping the hearts and minds of teens, especially when it comes to their vocations. Our new Vocation Youth Curriculum will teach teens about marriage, priesthood, and religious life, as well as offer solid principles for discerning one's vocation.
Catholic Schools & Religious Education
Invite teachers and catechists include lessons about vocations in their classes.
Processions are not just for the Feast of Corpus Christi! There is a bilingual booklet available called Eucharistic Procession for Vocations, which leads participants through visiting three “altars” to pray for vocations.
Vocation Prayer Apostolate
Ask the sick and homebound to offer up their suffering for more vocations to the priesthood. This is best done through Eucharistic Ministers to the sick, who can invite the sick to participate. Request brochure for the Vocation Prayer Apostolate.
If your parish has a Eucharistic Adoration chapel, consider a special Holy Hour to pray for vocations.
Launch New Vocations Initiatives
Have you been meaning to start a Vocations Chalice program? Vocation Awareness Week is a great time for “kickoff.”
