“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”

Everyone needs a little help and encouragement. That includes those who are considering a call to the priesthood and religious life. Some don’t know where to turn. Others have never even considered it a possibility. Below are a few resources for promoting vocations in your parish, group, and the home. This is about providing the tools and the opportunity for people to ask the important question “What is the Lord asking of me?” and encouraging them to not be afraid and say “yes” to the Lord with confidence.
