We take the Church's urgent call for the fostering of vocations as a value we treasure highly (Pope Paul VI, Decree on Priestly Training Optatam Totus, n.2). Across the diocese, there are many programs designed for this purpose. We begin with the family and get everyone to think of their unique vocations in the sacraments of service—ordained and religious life, and married life. Be part of this great call to foster vocations in the diocese.
