You Can Help Promote Our Vocation Events

We have a lot of vocation events going on throughout the year. Some are widely known and well-attended, but we can always use more promotional help, especially through the word-of-mouth efforts of vocation promotors like you!

Your efforts can help make our
vocation events successful!

So, how can you help promote our vocation events? I’m glad you asked! Here’s a short list of some things you may be able to do to help, depending on your situation:

  • Sign up for our email list if you aren’t on it; encourage others who can promote vocations to sign up. (You can use the "share" feature at the top of this email to send it to others who may be interested.)
  • Visit our vocation website regularly for updates on events.
  • Follow us on Facebook and watch for updates on events. Encourage young people to follow us also.
  • Be sure informational and promotional materials from the vocation office are in prominent locations at the Church vestibule, Parish Hall, etc
  • Make sure DREs and Youth Ministers are updated about events and have received promotional materials. (This is especially important, since they are a main point of contact with many of the youth who are the audience for these events!)
  • Make sure any Catholic Schools you are associated with have received information and promotional materials.
  • Personally invite any eligible youth you know to attend events.
  • Pray for the success of promoting events beforehand, as well as for their effectiveness during the event.

While it may seem like some of these things are very small and are limited in their effectiveness, consider the huge benefit if a large number of people did even one of these small things!

Never underestimate what God can do with your time and labor, if you give Him that chance! After all, it’s His work, and He can do wonderful things even with our humblest efforts!

Likewise, if you are aware of a young woman or man who is discerning religious life, please send them our way. We'll help connect them with respective religious communities.
