Pray for Vocations!
A Vocation is a call from God to do something specifically for God and for His kingdom. The primary vocation of every person is to be holy! It is the divine calling to love and serve God, to obey his commandments, and to cooperate with Christ in the work of redemption by loving and serving others. Everyone is called to live the vocation of holiness, but everyone lives it in a special and unique way according to the plan of God.
“There is no Church without the Eucharist!” Pope Benedict XVI
There is no Eucharist without priests! Please come and pray for an increase in vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life.

“Together with the whole Christian community, we trustingly ask and humbly beg the Lord for the gift of new and holy workers for his harvest. (Matthew 9:37-38). We know that the Lord sometimes makes us wait, but we also know that no one knocks in vain. So, with patient confidence we continue to pray to the Lord for the gift of new holy laborers.” Pope Benedict XVI
Come and Adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament!
What is a Vocation?
Saint Paul Vocations Ministry
For young men and women who are simply beginning to think about a priestly or religious vocation and for young men and women who are prepared to examine the steps to make a commitment, Saint Paul Parish Vocation Ministry is here to assist you in your discernment.
The mission of Saint Paul Parish Vocation Ministry is to empower men and women to discern God’s call to ordained ministry and consecrated life through activities that promote and increase awareness, educate and facilitate relationships. This mission is born from our participation in the life of Christ, which comes through our common baptism.
Fr. Kopil, Vocation Director of the Office for Vocations in the Diocese of Gary, has led the Parish Vocation Team in formation.
“Pray that the master of the harvest send out workers for his harvest.” ( Mt 9:38) Devotion to the Vocation Cross involves a designated parishioner/parish family taking the cross into their home for one week and praying a few minutes every day for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Participants are commissioned at the 10:00 AM Sunday Mass. Contact Barb Kubisak if you are interested in participating @ 405-8591.
