National Vocation Awareness Week

Each year during the second week of January (9-14), the Catholic bishops of the United States remind us all of the need to reflect upon the dignity of our calling as baptized Christians to help spread the Kingdom of God on earth. Each person needs to pray and discern earnestly what God’s will is for him/her as we strive to love God with our whole heart, soul, body, mind, and strength.  Some may discern that God is asking them to dedicate their entire lives to serving God and God’s people by choosing the consecrated life.
