Archives Work of the Vocation Office

April 18, 2018

By Cathy Russell
Diocesan Vocation Coordinator

The Vocation Office of the Diocese of Ogdensburg creates and supports opportunities to promote creating a culture of vocation throughout the diocese. That means the central truth of our faith that God calls each person to a life of holiness and gives each person a mission.

In addition, the Vocation Office promotes the call to priesthood and consecrated life.

To these ends, the following activities are offered:
• Parish Vocation Ministries (set up, support, training and networking)

• Print and promotional vocational materials, annual seminarian poster

• Regional Operation Andrew Dinners - (These gatherings for young men and their parents are a way to learn about the call to priesthood, to hear real vocation stories and to enjoy a good meal with the bishop and               area priests.)

• Operation Miriam ( Similar to the Andrew dinners, these are for young women so they can learn about consecrated life through listening to Sisters’ vocation stories and sharing a meal.

• Discernment Groups (Monthly gathering for young men who come together to pray and discern whether God is calling them to priesthood.

• Individual vocational counseling and support

• Annual Catholic school visits

• Parish Workshops, retreats, catechetical program visits on vocation, discipleship, holiness

• Altar server gathering in the summer

•  Support for seminarians
