Vocation Ideas

Reprinted from “Called to Serve” Journal published by the Office of Vocations, Diocese of St. Petersburg

Praying and Worship:
Make a commitment in your own daily prayer for an increase of vocations to our diocese. Prayer, works, sufferings and joys also can be offered to God for vocations.

Education and Resources:
Compile a Resource Book for reference and enrichment. Articles about priests or religious, the breadth and depth of their call, lifestyle, and the types of ministry, even obituaries, jubilee write-ups….anything that educates is appropriate.

Service and Fellowship:
Send greeting cards to each of the seminarians at the beginning of a new semester, holidays, exam times, closing of a semester, ordination, birthday, or any other special day you can think of. Let them know how much you appreciate them and that you are praying for them.
