National Vocation Awareness Week Nov. 3-9

National Vocation Awareness Week Nov. 3-9

Meet Our Sisters Tour in Chicago

Consider inviting people into your chapels, ministries, and homes next month for National Vocation Awareness Week. Pictured here is Sister Barbara Harrington, G.N.S.H.

NRVC encourages you to use the occasion of National Vocation Awareness Week, November 3-9, to raise awareness about consecrated life and other types of vocations.

Communities are already gearing up to mark the week. In Chicago, a group of Communicators for Women Religious members are planning a series of open houses called the Meet Our Sisters Tour. Details are here

Other ways to promote vocations during the week include:

  • special social media posts (click here for two NEW videos to post).
  • events in schools
  • parish prayers of petition, prayer services
  • campus ministry outreach events
  • sisters, brothers, and religious priests speaking at parish Masses
  • vocation lessons in religion classrooms
  • distribution of "10 Questions Parents Ask" or "10 Questions People Ask"  in schools, parishes, and sponsored  ministries. Bulk orders are available. (See this month's "Resource of the month.")

Resources and information about the week can be found here. Please send any plans, photos, or news about your events to
