The Bishops' Committee on Vocations presents a program for priests to actively
invite men to consider a vocation to the priesthood. This program is entitled
Priestly Life and Vocations Summit: Fishers of Men and is available in PDF format. This project is a presbyteral workshop which utilizes the appreciative inquiry method of asking priests about their most positive experiences in the priesthood. Please see the links below to access the workshop material.
It is the hope of the Bishops’ Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations that this project will bring about a renewal of the priests in the United States and also lead to the regeneration of priesthood itself. This presbyteral workshop is based on interviews with priests. The actual convocation with the priest includes their testimonies of positive priestly experiences, establishing strategies for promoting priestly vocations, and creating a structure within the presbyterate for inviting men to consider the priesthood.
With the premiere of the full-length DVD feature of "Fishers of Men," the USCCB Secretariat for Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations has now made available an overview of the DVD, a general set of discussion questions and a set of discussion questions for priests.
