New vocations website
The U.S. bishops' Secretariat of Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations initiated a new website in April to be a resource for laity and clergy in the promotion of vocations.
The goals of the site are to help individuals hear and respond to the call to the priesthood or consecrated life and to educate Catholics on the importance of encouraging others through prayer and activities to promote vocations.
The site includes discernment resources for men and women, aids for promoting a vocation culture within the home and tools for educators, youth leaders and vocation directors including prayers, videos and vocation awareness programs.
Facebook users can become "eVangelizers" for the cause. By becoming an eVangelizer, one can connect others to the website's blog posts.
Answering "yes" to these questions may confirm that you hear the call to discern a vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life.
