Ways to Participate
National Vocation Awareness Week, Nov. 7-13, 2021, offers each of us the invitation to reflect on our vocation. Our vocation, God’s call, and how we respond give meaning and purpose to our lives.
For young people, it’s an invitation to look toward the future with hope and spend time in prayer, reflection and considering some tools of discernment to bring into your spiritual life.
For adults, it’s an invitation to affirm the gifts and talents of others, of young people, and encourage them to consider ways God may be calling them to be of service in the Church and the world.
Here are some concrete suggestions of how you may choose to participate in National Vocation Awareness Week- though each of these resources offers practices that foster a culture of vocations at any time of the year.
