National Vocation Awareness Week is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations. It is a time when families, parish and school communities are urged to nurture the faith of their children to prepare them to respond to whatever God’s call is for them. To help you observe this week, here are some resources for you:
