RENEW YOUR VOCATIONAL CALLING  

Renew and revitalize your vocation with a deeper interior life.

EVENT SPONSORS

GROW IN MORE INTIMATE COMMUNION WITH CHRIST THE SERVANT.

It's easy to feel stretched thin as a deacon. With parish committees, family, pastoral work, administrative tasks, and professional commitments, there are a lot of things to juggle. 

 

Amidst it all, it can be easy to lose focus on the most important thing to living our vocation well.

 

More than anything, the Church today needs her deacons living their vocation through an ever-deepening interior life

This virtual event is about being renewed as Catholic deacons through a deepening interior life.
