The history of the people of God is the story of special callings. All who are baptized are Christian ministers. Some may be called to lay ministry, others to the deaconate, still others to the priesthood. Our Christian journey is a life of learning to listen and discern God’s call to particular individuals and to the community of faith. Discerning the Call strives to educate the parish on its important role in identifying those who might be called to ordained ministry; and to involve members of the faith community in carefully and prayerfully assisting those seeking vocational discernment.
