The U.S. Catholic Church celebrates National Vocation Awareness Week Nov. 5–11. It sounds like an event the church is putting on for us, but it is really a call to action for members of the church. A vocation is a calling, and we are all called to serve Jesus. But Vocation Awareness Week highlights those special vocations of service for the church: priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life. This week reminds us of the need for holy and dedicated persons to fulfill these vocations.
