My Vocation

Is Jesus really asking me?

If you are pondering the question, is God calling me to give myself to Him?, do not be afraid. His grace will guide you as you seek to know His will. You are welcome to contact our vocation director if you are interested in more information on our community. Know that we will pray for you.

Your vocation, your God-given calling, is an incredible gift. Whether you believe that marriage is God’s design for your life, or if you feel drawn to investigate religious life – God is seeking you! He has a definite plan for your life, one that will ask for your own self-gift, but one that will ultimately fulfill you.
