Vocations Office (Atlanta)

“To create a true ‘Vocation Culture’ is to foster an atmosphere in which young Catholics are open to a personal invitation to discern accurately and embrace freely the form of permanent commitment in the Church to which they are being called.” The quote above, taken from the Pastoral Plan of the Third Continental Congress on Vocations to Ordained Ministry and Consecrated Life in North America, underscores the focus of vocation promotion efforts within the diocese. The foundation upon which a vocation culture is built includes five underpinnings or “pastoral priorities” first identified in 2000 by the Third Continental Congress in Montreal: to pray, to evangelize, to experience, to mentor, and to invite. The Archdiocese of Atlanta realizes that it is important to keep vocation promotion activities securely bonded to these underpinnings and most especially to that of prayer.
Continuing education for the seminarians beyond the scope of seminary. This can include mission trips, pastoral formation and language programs.
