National Vocation Awareness Week  January 10th-16th
“Baptized in the Spirit”

The Catholic Church in the United States will celebrate National Vocation Awareness Week, January 10-16, which begins with the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord. At baptism, we are all called to become saints. This year’s theme “Baptized in the Spirit” reminds us to go forth in courage to proclaim to all the Good News of Jesus Christ. Follow Jesus without fear and do not be afraid to “walk in the Light”.

God calls us all to live our faith and seek out our vocation to become a deacon, priest, religious sister, married or single person. Perhaps God is calling you to the priesthood or consecrated life. Will you have the courage to follow your heart? We are all called to love and serve Him and one another.  As we continue to walk in the light of Christ and to serve our Lord with our whole heart, mind and soul, may we be “Baptized in the Spirit” of love and forgiveness.

National Vocation Awareness Week is a time for reflection. During the week of January 10th-16th, we encourage all Catholics to:
•· Take time to pray for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
•· Reflect on our own vocation and strengthen our personal relationship with Christ.
•· Educate our young people about the importance of silent prayer and taking the time to truly
listen to God’s voice in our hearts.

Enjoy this video of our charism and life as Franciscan friars totally consecrated to the Immaculate and if you know anyone who is discerning a vocation or you think has a vocation, please forward them the link. And most of all, please pray for vocations. For more information call FI Vocations Director at: 812-825-4742 or go to

Ave Maria!
