Vocation Awareness Week

Nest week is National Vocation Awareness Week, which always follows after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. (This year, it starts with epiphany b/c the Baptism is on a Monday.) If you need some ideas about what to do either at home, school, or parish, the Vocation Office recently published a ton of great material and it is available here. I know it is a shameless plug, but I really think it is great stuff!

Fr. Schnippel,

I caught the vocation radio spot on SHR this morning. It was very good: straightforward, direct, and ... "priestly," i.e., identity-oriented.

Thanks, Rich

I've got about 5 or 6 of the generic 'Vocation Minutes' running on Sacred Heart Radio here in the Nati, plus PSA's on upcoming events as needed. Bill Levitt, who is the station manager, wants to get even more things going, we just haven't had the time yet to get things together. Stay tuned for further developments....

Do a Q&A show focused on vocations and the "sticky subjects" that surround it, e.g., women's "ordination," the spousal relationship between priest and Church, the "right" to be a priest, etc.

My $.02.

Throughout January, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity's "Franciscanized
World" page - http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org/living.asp features a streaming download and image of the Jordan River, near Jesus' assumed baptism site. It's cool
