Resources Available for Vocation Awareness Week
The Catholic Church in the United States will celebrate National Vocation Awareness Week January 9-16. It provides parishes the opportunity to highlight the gift of vocations in the Church through prayer and education. Vocation Awareness Week began in 1976 with the purpose of inviting young people to consider a call to ordained ministry and consecrated life.
In a letter marking the week, the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge expressed gratitude to the faithful in the Diocese of Raleigh for praying for the 21 men in formation. He asked the faithful to pray that more men and women respond to God’s call.
Vocations resource material for parishes and families is available on the Diocesan Vocations web site. The page also includes information on the Diocesan Vocations program and the men enrolled in the Diocesan program.
