Although Vocations can me a call to marriage or the single life, more often we refer to vocations as the call to Holy Orders. Holy Orders is a discernment process that involves prayer, contemplation and more prayer! No decision to choose any vocation whether it be marriage and family or single service or to be a priest, diaconate or religious sister or brother, all of these decision should have the same amount of prayer and patience. And yet we need good Christian men and women to consider the call for God's Plan in your Life. If you would like to learn more please visit our Vocations Page.
