Exploring Vocational Discernment

The recent Synod on "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment" and "Christus Vivit" emphasized the importance of discernment and vocation in the life of young people.  Pope Francis noted that "that all of us, but "especially the young, are immersed in a culture of zapping. We can navigate simultaneously on two or more screens and interact at the same time with two or three virtual scenarios. Without the wisdom of discernment, we can easily become prey to every passing trend." Consider the following sessions and resources for exploring discernment and vocation with your young people.

World Youth Day Celebrated in the U.S. - October 27, 2019
"I am the servant of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word." (Lk 1:38)

In honor of young people and the distinctive gifts they share with our faith communities, our bishops declared that U.S. Catholic parishes and schools will observe World Youth Day annually on the 30th Sunday of Ordinary Time (October 27, 2019). This particular Sunday is intended to highlight the presence, energy, and diversity of youth and is an opportunity for the entire faith community to join in affirming the gifts of the young Catholic Church. ​
