God calls. We respond. A vocation is a response to a specific call that Jesus Christ places on our hearts. It is our individual way of living discipleship in the Church.
Our primary call, through the Sacrament of Baptism, is to be a follower (disciple) of Jesus Christ. It is to be a holy person. Within that first call to follow Christ, God calls us in specific ways to live a vocation to the married life, the single life, the consecrated religious life, or the ordained life.
Please check out the various pages related to vocations from the drop-down menu on the top of this page for much more information.

Types of Vocations
- A vocation to the Diocesan Priesthood is a life of serving God’s people within the parishes and diocese by being a visible sign of the presence of Christ.
- A vocation to the Religious Life involves living vows of poverty, chastity and obedience as a religious sister, brother or priest within community life.
- A vocation to the Married Life is living committed love to spouse and family in a way that shows others the kind of love that God shares with us.
- A vocation to the Single Life involves using the freedom of a single person to live as an example of great generosity and service to God and others.
