The late Pope John Paul II commissioned each of us with the obligation to promote vocations to the priesthood and the religious life within our families and within our parish and to pray for the perseverance of those who have accepted God’s call. In order to do your part, you may:
- Become a member of the Vocations Committee, whose purpose is to foster and support vocations to the priesthood and religious life by planning various activities.
- Join the "365 Club." Choose one day out of the year to go to Mass and, as your intention, offer it specifically for an increase of vocations from our parish. (H)
- Pray a rosary once a week for vocations. (H)
- Frequently pray a "Prayer for vocations."
We currently have 3 young men who are studying for the priesthood:
Isaac Coulter: 4th Theology, Mundelein Seminary (Chicago, Illinois)
Matt Davied: 4th Theology, Mount St. Mary's (Emmitsburg, Maryland)
Matt Dolechek: 3rd college, Conception (Conception, Missouri)
