National Vocation Awareness Week

November 5-11, 2023

National Vocation Awareness Week is time set aside each year to reflect on the importance of vocations in the Catholic Church in the United States. This week long dedication highlights the opportunity we have to pray, invite and support vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and religious life.

Live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.

Ephesians 4:1-3

Ways to Participate

  • Spend time in prayer for vocations.
  • Write a note to your parish priest to thank him for his vocation.
  • Learn how groups like the St. John Paul II Shepherd’s Guild, Serra International and the Knights of Columbus foster and support vocations.
  • Print and post the seminarian and diaconate daily prayer lists prominently in your home as reminders to pray every day for men in formation.
