What is your role in vocation ministry?

I am the vocation director for the United States Province of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

How long have you been involved in vocation ministry?

This is my first year serving as vocation director.

Has it made a difference in your life to belong to NRVC?

NRVC has been helpful in providing resources, training, and support. It is an uplifting group that collaborates for the needs of the church. I love being a part of it!

What wisdom have you gathered so far about being involved in vocations work?

Be patient, learn from others, depend on the Holy Spirit's guidance, and BE NOT AFRAID!

What have you found most challenging and most rewarding?

The most challenging is to be totally detached and patient. The most rewarding is journeying with young people who are so inspiring and open to God's will.
