As Catholics, we firmly believe that God has a plan for our lives! He calls some to marriage, some to the priesthood, and others to religious life. Some remain as generous single people. Fully living our own vocations and teaching young people how to discern God’s call is a serious duty, but also a joyful one. Today begins National Vocation Awareness Week.
During this week, please pray about how God is calling you to live your vocation more deeply. Encourage the young people in your life – children, grandchildren, students, and friends – to be open if God calls them to priesthood or consecrated life. For more information, go to VocationsOnline.org or call 515-237-5050 and ask for Father Ross Parker.
