Discerning Your Vocation

God calls us all in different ways. Here are some resources to help you discern where God might be calling you.

A vocation is a divine call (or strong desire) to spend your life doing a certain kind of work or lifestyle. While we tend to think of only clergy as having a vocation, all Christians can have a vocation. Your vocation may be the job you hold or the life you live as a family member or a passion you have to serve others. One of the places to begin your discernment is to talk with your priest, a spiritual director or someone with whom you share your spiritual journey.

In the Diocese of Rhode Island, those who are pursing a vocation in the ordained ministry are required to follow a path outlined by the Commission on Ministry. Contact your parish priest for more information.
