National Vocation Awareness Week

National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promote 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.

NVAW began in 1976 when the US Bishops designated the 28th Sunday of the year for NVAW.  In 1997, this celebration was moved to coincide with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, in January.  It has since been moved to the first full week in November.

This year we are celebrating with Mass and Adoration daily for Vocations. Monday 11/06 – Our Lady of Grace, Beverly Hills. Tuesday 11/07 – Christ the King, Tampa. Wednesday 11/08 – Our Lady of the Rosary, Land O Lakes (Spanish). Thursday 11/09 – St. Joan of Arc, Springhill. Friday 11/10 – Cathedral of St. Jude, St. Petersburg (with Bishop Parkes).

National Vocation Awareness Week is November 6-10, 2023.
