Vocations & Discernment

"God has created you to know and love Him in a totally unique way and has given you a mission that only you can fulfill. You will never regret taking time to discover the gift of your vocation." - "A Season of Discernment", Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus

"For I know well the plans I have in mind for you—oracle of the LORD—plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope." -Jeremiah 29:11


If you would like to talk with someone about vocations and discernment, Fr. Tony, Sr. Carrie, or Jenna Leighton (Youth Minister) would be happy to speak with you. You may call or e-mail any of us.
