Office of vocations


Department of Vocations

Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia, USA


Do you feel that the Lord’s presence in your life is guiding you to a life of dedication and service to Him and your fellow men and women?  As Catholic Christians, we actively seek God’s grace to give us direction in life and guidance to obey His will in our lives.  Our Lord calls us to different duties in our lives – this is what a vocation is all about!

Is God calling you to a life of marriage?  Or perhaps he is calling you to a life of celibacy?  Is he calling you to a life of service as a priest, deacon, monastic or layperson?  Only YOU can tell if God is calling you in your life!

For more information, click on the icon of Christ the True Vine, which will take you to our official Department of Vocations website.  We hope to see you over there!  God bless!

Prayer for Vocations: 

Almighty and merciful God, inspire those You have chosen
to hear and answer Your call to the Priesthood and Religious Life.

Give them the courage to be the prophets for our times.
Give them the wisdom and openness to live their personal call.
Give them the strength to be ready witness
of Your love and care for the world.

May they find support and encouragement
in our words and in our prayers,
through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God,
and all the Saints.  Amen.
