The Office of Vocations for the Diocese of Owensboro is inviting every parish, school, and campus ministry to participate in our Four-Point Vocation Plan (adapted from a similar plan in the Archdiocese of New York) to promote vocations to priesthood:
- PRAY: Pray for more priestly vocations in our diocese.
- INVITE: Personally Invite young men to consider a vocation to priesthood and to attend vocation events in the diocese.
- TEACH: Help young men discern their vocation by incorporating discernment into the school and youth ministry curriculum.
- CELEBRATE: Make sure your parish, school, and campus ministry observe the Church’s annual vocation dates, such as National Vocation Awareness Week in the fall and the World Day of Prayer for Vocations in the spring.
The Diocese has created a booklet to use as a guide for participating in and implementing these four steps into your parish, school, and campus ministry. Please click on the image of the booklet to view, download and save.
The Office of Vocations is ready to assist and support you in promoting vocations. We know that God is calling young men to priesthood. It’s up to us to help amplify the call.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.”
