This week, our church celebrates National Vocation Awareness Week from November 7th to 13th.
This is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.
Everyone has a calling, a specific way in which we are to love God, others, and ourselves. God calls all of us to live out our baptismal promises to follow and imitate Christ in a particular state of life. This is our vocation.
There are four categories of vocation that our Church uses to help us discern God’s plan:
In each of these four ways of life, God calls us to freely and generously respond to his call. By living out our vocation, we experience deep fulfillment and joy.
What are the vocations of all those within your Church of the Home?
How can your Church of the Home support those that are answering the call to a vocation of priesthood or religious life?
Did you know?
Every year, around 200 people in America make a profession to religious life and the priesthood.
Also, about 400 people begin the process of entering religious life each year.
There are 45,100 women religious and 15,549 men religious in America.
Join us for Mass this weekend in person at 4:oo on Saturday, 8:30 or 10:30 on Sunday, on www.gbres.org/live, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.
