Ideas for Parish Vocation Committees

of things to be implemented in parishes to help promote vocations.

I recently sent a letter to all the pastors in the Archdiocese of projects that could be (should be?) implemented in parishes across the Archdiocese to help promote vocations. Topics I included were:
* A Traveling Chalice or Crucific program
*Adoration for Vocations
*Weekly Petitions at Mass
*Bulletin Announcements
*Poster Displayed from the Vocation Office and Mount St. Mary's Seminary **
*Personal Invitation
*Participation and Promotion of Vocation Awareness Week
*Fishers of Men DVD
*Group Tours of the Seminary Grounds
*Way of the Cross for Vocations
*Vocation Fair
*Rosary for Vocations
*Adopt a Seminarian

The full letter can be found at the Cincinnati Seminarian Blog.

** If your diocese does not have a poster of the current roster of seminarians displayed in every parish, this needs to happen!!

** The updated poster for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will be available shortly, I hope.
