“Speak, for your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:10

St. Patrick's Chapel


The word vocation comes from the Latin word vocare, which means “to call.” Though we tend to think of vocations as jobs we choose like being a teacher, investment banker, or electrician, a vocation in the Church is not something we choose but rather something God calls us to live. When we decide on careers, we usually make the choice based on our gifts and abilities, likes and dislikes. If God calls us to the vocation of a religious sister, parish priest, or even a parent, it is in spite of our gifts and abilities because he uses everything that we are, even our weaknesses.
