WASHINGTON — The Catholic Church in the United States will celebrate National Vocation Awareness Week Jan. 9-14. The celebration is dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life through prayer and education.
“It is our responsibility to help children and young people develop a prayerful relationship with Jesus Christ so they will know their vocation,” said Archbishop Robert Carlson of St. Louis, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ committee on clergy, consecrated life, and vocations.
