National Vocation Awareness Week, celebrated November 1-7, 2020, is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States, dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.
The Office of Vocations in the Diocese of Raleigh cultivates a culture of prayer for vocations to help qualified men and women hear the call of God. It promotes vocations and walks with candidates through screening, application, acceptance and transitions to seminary. It coordinates with seminary faculty on the formation and evaluation of potential candidates for the priesthood and religious life.
