Vocation Ministry Spotlight

 Holy Trinity & Historic Saint Patrick Vocation Ministry Committee


God calls us to follow a specific path in life. He may lead us to married life, single life, religious life, the diaconate or the priesthood.  Because of free will, we are not required to follow God's plan, therefore, not fulfilling His purpose for us.    It is no secret that many Catholic families  do not encourage their children to consider a religious life. 

The vocation committee is a group of parishioners from Holy Trinity and Historic St. Patrick whose goal is to raise awareness  and provide the incentive to not overlook the possibility for vocations within our families and within our community.  We do this with prayers for vocations, encouragement for Seminarians and those preparing for religious life, and  by planning small awareness events for both of our parishes.  If you are someone that has been praying for vocations on your own, you may want to consider joining our committee.
