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.
