A life of service: Sister Cele Gorman, OP

Catholic Voices - What can you do to promote vocations?

The U.S. Catholic Church celebrates National Vocation Awareness Week Nov. 5–11. It sounds like an event the church is putting on for us, but it is really a call to action for members of the church. A vocation is a calling, and we are all called to serve Jesus. But Vocation Awareness Week highlights those special vocations of service for the church: priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life. This week reminds us of the need for holy and dedicated persons to fulfill these vocations.
