Vocations Awareness

Contact: Deacon Gerry Hand

Scheduled Meetings: Meetings are scheduled as required.

Mission Statement: The goal of the Vocations Awareness Ministry is to provide an atmosphere in the parish in which all eligible people may carefully consider priesthood, the diaconate or religious life as a possible calling for themselves.

Current Activities:

  • To pray daily for increased vocations
  • To become aware of the various ministries of the Catholic Church, particularly the priesthood, diaconate and religious life
  • To offer support and encouragement to priests, deacons and religious within the parish
  • To provide example through personal Christian family life as a means of encouraging vocations
  • To accept and carry out assigned tasks and to report on the progress of the assigned work.  Tasks could include working with other parish committees.

Current Volunteer Opportunities: New members are always welcome.

Please see the poster in the Narthex of the Church for all of the Diocese of Charleston's seminarians.
