Holy Spirit Vocation Ministry

We all have a vocation. But as Catholics, we often use the word “vocation” narrowly, speaking of vocation to the priesthood or religious life, especially when we speak with children and teens about discerning their vocation. The root of the word “vocation,” however, is “vocare,” which means, “to call.” When considered in this light, discerning one’s vocation is about hearing and responding to the call of the Lord with our lives.

Holy Spirit has formed a Vocations Ministry team.  Their goal is the promotion and encouragement of vocations to the priesthood and religious life among our parish community. Their work in the promotion of vocations will be in close collaboration with the Vocation Office of the Diocese to encourage families to promote vocations and create an environment that fosters and encourages it. Finally, the team will support and honor those priests and religious already working in their vocation, most especially our pastor.

Vocation Reflections
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?”  Through prayer our minds become better aligned with the mind of Christ and His will for us.  If the Spirit is prompting you to know Christ as a priest, deacon or in the consecrated life, contact Father John Ohlig at the Vocations Office at 806-792-3943 ext 226 or email
