Parish Vocations Committee

What We Offer

Parish Vocations Committee is made up of men and women dedicated to prayerfully build a "Culture of Vocations" at St. Stephen. As the Eucharist is central to our faith community, the priest is central to the Eucharist and every transition through life's milestones. We need more priests and religious to serve parishes, dioceses and the world to embrace Jesus Christ's mission. God is calling many workers to His vineyard. The Vocations Committee makes His call heard. We promote and support priestly and religious vocations by ----

  • Chalice and Ciborium rotating monthly among families with daily devotion praying for priestly and religious vocations. This devotion has functioned for 65 consecutive months!
  • Promote World Day of Prayer for Vocations to ordained and consecrated ministry.
  • Promote Daily Prayer for Priest calendar requesting prayers for priests in the diocese.
  • Promote clergy appreciation celebrating milestone events.
  • Promote priestly and religious discernment retreats.
  • Promote youth attendance at World Youth Days and Steubenville weekends.

Promotion of Vocations is a collaborative effort among representatives of Serra International, Knights of Columbus and Women's Guild. Our spiritual advisor is Deacon Chuck Embury.
