Year for Priests begins June 19
POPE BENEDICT XVI has named June 19, 2009 through June 19, 2010, the Year for Priests. These twelve months will serve as a time for renewal for priests and of encouragement to those considering a priestly vocation.
VISION Vocation Guide is committed to promoting religious life in all its forms, but in honor of the Year for Priests, we will dedicate our VocationCitings blog posts to the vocation stories of priests.
Discerners: We'd love to hear from you about a priest who made a difference in your life.
Vocation Directors: Feel free to send us an inspiring vocation story of a contemporary priest in your community or affiliated with your community. Videos or weblinks to stories will serve just as well.
