Each month, I try to give you a little inspiration, something to help you in your work to create a culture of vocations because I know it can feel like you are alone in this. But you are not!!! Know that each activity, no matter how small, makes a difference in the culture of your parish. You may not feel that all the time, but I promise that over time, it will! You never know the prayer card that can inspire a vocation or the bulletin blurb that sparks awareness for a parishioner to speak more often about vocations in a home.

Let's meet face to face!
    • Ready to take your Vocation Ministry to the next level but don’t know where to start?
    • Want to embark on a larger activity in the next Phase and need some practical advice?
    • Left the workshop, but you need more help?

    The easy solution is to set up a Skype Meeting or even FaceTime over your phone with Rhonda Gruenewald in English or Leticia Ramirez in Spanish to gain insights on making the biggest impact in your parish. This can be done individually or in a group setting. The price is $100 for a session. Schedule a time now by emailing  rhonda@vocationministry.com.

        World Day of Prayer for Vocations
        April 22, 2018 (Good Shepherd Sunday)

        Purpose: To pray for vocations from your parish/diocese/world in any possible way.

        Ideas: Write a blurb for bulletin, make announcement at Masses, prayer cards handed out after Mass, a family Holy Hour, rosary said for vocations before each weekend Mass, launch adoration for vocations, or Traveling Chalice (for those farther in the phases).

        I will go into more detail about how to promote this event in March, but go ahead and make some decisions now, remembering to ask others to help you like the Knights of Columbus, Serra Club, or another group at your parish or in your diocese.

          Updates to the Website

          Each month I add new resources and ideas to  www.vocationministry.com! Last month, I added a full page of ideas for how FAMILIES can promote vocations in their own home. This month, I am implementing updates to about 20 activities, so make sure you get a subscription to see how easy it can be to implement the ideas in Hundredfold.

          Below is an endorsement from a Vocation Ministry member who wanted to share why she became a subscriber at  www.VocationMinistry.com.

          I just signed up for my Vocation Ministry Membership to the online resources that go with our book Hundredfold.  I did not hesitate as I knew I needed access to the wonderful resources  www.VocationMinistry.com provides to benefit our ministry!  By following the information/text of our book and then being able to go online to implement some of our activities and events is vital!  I always wondered how we were so lucky to have all these fabulous resources free of charge and our group appreciates the fact that they were free for our use, but to keep all of us on track and help Rhonda continue to promote vocations, we were happy to contribute to their ministry which, in turn, will contribute all sorts of ideas and guidance to our ministry!  Sign up today!  You will be so glad to have the resources it provides to make your ministry stay on track and serve your parishes!
