Make every week National Vocation Awareness Week

Even though National Vocations Awareness Week has passed, it's never a bad time to reflect on the idea of vocation, which comes from the Latin vocare, “to call.” No matter which vocation we are called to live as an expression of God’s love in the world, everyone is called to holiness. How are we progressing along that path, and how we may be called to pray for, support and encourage others in exploring their vocations?

Seminarians and religious sisters and brothers will be speaking in a number of parishes November 9-10. Get to know our seminarians and what led them to seminary and read the Arlington Catholic Herald for stories about those living out their vocation in the Diocese.

By our baptism, all Christians have a vocation to holiness that can be lived out in a variety of ways. Access resources below and on our website to aid your discernment process and pray for those currently discerning or living out their vocation. Order print versions of these materials and more to help promote vocations
