The Vocations Committee at St. Vincent de Paul works to increase awareness of vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
They accomplish this through various activities. Most notably, a traveling Vocations Crucifix is given to a different family each week of the year at Sunday Mass. The family prays for vocations from our parish and that God's will be done within their own family.
For the last eight years, the Vocations Committee at St. Vincent de Paul has done its part to sponsor events that will celebrate and recognize the Vocations Ministry. The 8th Grade Essay Contest again has been a huge success due to the efforts of Mr. Frank Dunn’s religion class and Vocations Committee members. The ten finalists for 2017 are pictured above with their certificates of recognition. The ceremony was held during the November 8 Student Mass. Fr. Joe Sund presented the certificates to the students along with an inspiring message about vocations. Students and parents are to be congratulated.
