National Vocation Awareness Week Nov 5-11, 2023

This annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States is dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.

Check out this video that features some of our Province Friars reflecting on their love of God and pursuing a vocation.
