Today begins Vocation Awareness Week 2019. This week the faithful will observe several activities to keep the conversation about vocations to the priesthood, religious life and lay consecrated life going.
The activities are meant to create an awareness that this conversation is still necessary and relevant, and most of all, that God still calls men and women into His service.
The sense of awareness of “vocation” and “call” can never be taken for granted, however. The institutional Church cannot take for granted that the rank and file of Church membership relates to the language of “vocation” and “call”.
