Vocations

"All in the Church are called to holiness."
Lumen Gentium, 39

A vocation is an invitation from God to give oneself in a particular way for the upbuilding of the Church and the sanctification of the world. While each person has a specific calling to live out the call to holiness, at the heart of a vocation is love. Love alone is the motivation to serve as a priest, a consecrated, or a married person.

Priesthood

Priesthood

"The priesthood is the love of the Heart of Jesus" (St. John Vianney). Just as Jesus Christ called some men to follow him as his apostles, He invites some men to lay down their lives so that others may have life.
Consecrated Life

Consecrated Life

God calls some to pattern their lives more closely after Christ by committing themselves to the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
Marriage

Marriage

"This is what marriage is all about: man and woman walking together, wherein the husband helps his wife to become ever more a woman, and wherein the woman has the task of helping her husband to become ever more a man.
Discernment

Discernment

What is discernment? - Because God's call to a particular vocation involves a commitment of one's life to follow the call, consideration of what God's call for one's life is necessary.
