National Vocation Awareness Week is November 6-12, 2016
The entire Lasallian family is invited to participate in National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) November 6-12, 2016. The week invites the broader Church, and our Lasallian family, Brothers and Partners, to rededicate their energies to promote a culture of vocations with a special focus on consecrated life, the priesthood and the diaconate.
Through prayer, promoting a culture of vocations in their ministries and inviting reflection, Lasallians are called to foster opportunities to share and explore their vocational journeys.
The 45th General Chapter defined a culture of vocations as “a setting in which life’s meaning is understood as a personal call to serve the mission in community.”
NVAW will focus on the theme “Deepening and Discerning God’s Call in Your Life” and how we can all, as student, teacher, coach, parent, Brother, priest, counselor, sibling and friend can make more intentional time for prayer and discernment in our lives.
This weeklong online retreat is an invitation to pause for 20-30 minutes each day and spend some time in prayer and reflection about God’s call in your life. The structure each day is similar and designed for individuals or small groups to explore each of the questions posed in a more intentional way.
