The Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations assists bishops, both collectively and individually, in promoting, supporting, and educating about the Church’s pastoral needs and concerns for the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life within culturally diverse communities of the United States; and in addressing issues concerning the life and ministry of bishops. The committee develops foundational documents and appropriate resources that promote the effective ministry of the clerical state, consecrated life, and vocations.
The Catholic Church in the United States will celebrate National Vocations Awareness Week, November 6-12, 2016. This is a special time for parishes in the U.S. to foster a culture of vocations for the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life.
This special workshop is available online as companion to the Guidelines for Receiving Pastoral Ministers in the U.S., Third Edition. It is designed for key personnel in dioceses, eparchies and religious communities who are responsible for drafting and implementing policies regarding international pastoral ministers.
