Jesus, the Good Shepherd, continues to call people to priesthood, the diaconate, and consecrated life in all of its forms. They may hear the Lord’s call through your voice!
† Would someone in your family make a good priest? Please tell him! It’s inspiring to have someone you love say, “You’d make a great priest!”
† Can you imagine a daughter or granddaughter devoting her life to serving God as a religious sister? Let her know! For young people who seek meaning in their lives, sisterhood has relevancy for today!
† Did you know that deacons are ordained but may also be married? A deacon’s ministry focuses on service. He may preach at Mass and preside at weddings, baptisms, and funerals. Talk about it!
