PALM BEACH GARDENS | God is calling you? Are you listening?
National Vocation Awareness Week is coming up Nov. 7-13, 2021, to remind the faithful to be open to the Lord’s promptings and reach out to people who might make great priests, deacons or consecrated men and women.
To encourage those efforts, the Diocese of Palm Beach’s Office of Vocations and Seminarians is planning events during vocations week that draws attention to the need for all men and women to pursue a holy life. The events include the following:
