Thank you for saying yes to your pastor’s request to be on his Vocation Ministry Team (let me say that for him, and from our Office for Vocations at the diocese!). Helping people follow God’s call is such a gift to them and to our church! Perhaps you are excited about what that might look like, or petrified, or puzzled, but you’ll be given everything you need to make your parish a place where people know that God has a plan for their lives, and to discover along the way how beautiful of a plan He has for your life too. Thank you!

We will be in touch with everyone in the coming weeks with more details, but for now, keep May 4th open on your calendar for a Parishioner Workshop led by Vocation Ministry. If you want to know more about their works, and the resources/ideas they’ll be bringing to your parish through your vocation team, check out their website at: Or, you’re always welcome to get in touch with our Vocations Office at the diocese, and if I’d be happy to personally talk over things as well and you can contact me at

Prayers for you!
Fr. Dominic Rankin
