A comprehensive manual on how to start and sustain an effective Vocation Ministry in the typical Catholic parish.
This trifold brochure invites the sick and homebound to enroll in the Vocation Prayer Apostolate, joining their suffering with Christ to intercede for vocations to the priesthood. Includes compelling imagery, scriptures about suffering, powerful prayers, and a clear theology of redemptive suffering. These brochures are typically distributed in the parish by those who visit the sick.
This brochure is written for teens who may feel some skepticism about even considering a vocation to priesthood or religious life. The theme is YOLO—the millennial generation’s shorthand phrase for “you only live once.”
The brochure has a unique design: when first unfolded, it presents the four main states in life: marriage, priesthood, religious life, or single life. When further unfolded, it presents frank answers to teens’ questions about celibacy, boredom, and happiness. The back of the brochure includes six practical ways to discern one’s vocation.
