Vocations



“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38

Come, Follow Me

All Catholics are called, by baptism, to the vocation of holiness. Some Catholics are called to a particular vocation of a life-time commitment to the service of God and his Church. The Vocations Committee promotes and encourages vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate and to religious life.
