Vocations

Priests

Through the sacrament of Baptism, each person receives "a call", or vocation. All are called to holiness and to serve. This call can be lived out in a variety of ways: as a married or single person, or as a priest, brother, or sister.

The following sections provide some direction for the heart and mind ready to ask and answer the question, "Who does God want me to be?"

Upcoming Vocation Events: 2016

 

Serra Dinners in Support of Vocations 

Each month the Vocations Office sponsors a Serra Dinner for individuals interested in supporting vocations.  A delicious meal is served (free will offering), followed by a short vocation story from a Fargo area clergyman and concludes with easy ideas to encourage vocations in your parish or family. Our dinners this year are served at Blessed Sacrament Church, 210 5th St, West Fargo on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Serra brochure available here soon.

The Vocation Office sponsors Operation Andrew dinners in regions throughout the diocese at various times during the year.
