National Vocation Awareness Week, November 5-11, 2023

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has stated the Catholic Church in the United States will commemorate National Vocation Awareness Week, November 5-11. Each year, national Catholic organizations, dioceses, schools, and local parish communities sponsor events and provide different resources to raise awareness for vocations, and help those who are discerning a vocation, particularly one to ordained ministry or consecrated life.

In his message for the 60th anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis stated, “Our common vocation to give ourselves in love develops and finds concrete expression in the life of lay men and women, devoted to raising a family as a small domestic church and working as the leaven of the Gospel to renew the different sectors of society; in the testimony of consecrated women and men who are completely committed to God for the sake of their brothers and sisters as a prophetic sign of the kingdom of God; in ordained ministers – deacons, priests, and bishops – placed at the service of preaching, prayer and fostering the communion of the holy People of God.”
 

Semana Nacional de las Vocaciones, del 5 al 11 de noviembre de 2023

La Conferencia de Obispos Católicos de los Estados Unidos (USCCB) ha declarado que la Iglesia americana destinará la semana del 5 al 11 de noviembre a la concientización sobre las vocaciones. Cada año, diócesis, escuelas, comunidades parroquiales y organizaciones católicas de toda índole organizan eventos para concienciar a la gente sobre este tema y brindar recursos a aquellos que puedan sentir un llamado a la vocación sacerdotal, al ministerio diaconal o a la vida consagrada.

En su mensaje para la 60 Jornada Mundial de Oración por las Vocaciones, el Papa Francisco mencionó que “la vocación al don de sí en el amor, común a todos, se despliega y se concreta en la vida de los cristianos laicos y laicas, comprometidos a construir la familia como pequeña iglesia doméstica y a renovar los diversos ambientes de la sociedad con la levadura del Evangelio; en el testimonio de las consagradas y de los consagrados, entregados totalmente a Dios por los hermanos y hermanas como profecía del Reino de Dios; en los ministros ordenados (diáconos, presbíteros, obispos) puestos al servicio de la Palabra, de la oración y de la comunión del pueblo santo de Dios”.
