2018 National Vocation Awareness Week, Nov. 4-10

2018 National Vocation Awareness Week, Nov. 4-10

 

 

National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promote vocations to ordained ministry and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations. 

Observance of Vocation Awareness Week began in 1976 when the U.S. bishops designated the 28th Sunday of the year for the celebration. It was later moved to Feast of the Baptism of the Lord in January. In 2014, after extensive consultation, the Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations moved the observance of National Vocation Awareness Week to November to engage Catholic schools and colleges more effectively in this effort.

"Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision.... Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love." —Pope Francis, July 6, 2013

This year National Vocation Awareness Week will not be modified as the Synod will just be ending. We are all anticipating a grand document from the Synod but a date for the completion of the document has not been announced.

I wonder if this week will be modified after the Youth Synod when the Church commits to helping all young adults discern God's call to whichever state in life aligns with their gifts and willingness to respond!
