2019 Vocations Team
Called and sent: vocation awareness

National Vocation Awareness Week is November 1-7, 2020. This annual celebration is dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life. This promotion is done through education, renewing prayers and support for those considering or discerning one of these particular vocations. Sister Bridget Waldorf, a member of the School Sisters of Notre Dame North American Vocation Team (NAVT), shares, “During COVID-19, the NAVT is thinking more creatively on how to connect with young adults, encouraging our sisters to be involved in vocation ministry and to plan for future gatherings.”

Sister Jeanne Wingenter shares, “Our Land Ethic Statement says to live more simply, responsibly and sustainably with one another and with all of creation.”
