Discovering your vocation is at the heart of living your most fruitful, most fulfilled, most joyful adult life; becoming your best self, whether as a priest, sister, brother, married or single person. And God wants each of us to discover our vocation, not simply to assume we know on our own how to become our best selves.
Men's Religious Vocations
If you are called by Christ to serve the Church as a religious priest or brother, it is in that life that you will find your joy. If you are not, it is only by engaging the question that you can find the answer and move on. The Office of Vocations for the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province, stands ready to assist you as you seek to find the answer. Hearing the call is a matter of seriously engaging the process of discernment. Learn more about Holy Cross Vocations here.
