Vocation Awareness Week 2021 Hero Image

It's National Vocation Awareness Week

National Vocations Awareness Week is November 7 - 13, 2021. It is an annual invitation 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?
