The Office of Vocations is happy to assist our elementary and high schools raise vocation awareness in any way we can. Fr. Chuck Dornquast, Director of Vocations, is happy to come and celebrate a school mass, assist with retreats, visit with classes, etc. Please contact Jasmine Pujol to schedule a visit to your school!
If you need vocations resources for your religious education classes, please contact the Office of Vocations. We have prayers cards in English and Spanish, for children and adults, posters, discernment booklets, videos, as well as other resources.
One way to promote vocations to your religious education classes is to pray for our seminarians. For a current listing of our seminarians, see our Seminarians.
Focus 11 is held in February each year. This is an excellent opportunity for all 6th graders in the diocese, whether in Catholic School, public schools or homeschool. All are invited to participate. See our recent February 2022 Focus 11 event.
