Lasallians Called to Invite and Encourage During National Vocation Awareness Week

Attendees of the DENA Vocation Summit 2014, which was themed 'Encouraging the Encouragers'

The entire Lasallian family is invited to participate in National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) November 1-7, 2015. The week invites parishes and Catholic schools 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 ministry 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 Together on a Journey building on the experience and imagery of the Camino de Santiago, which Brothers and young men in discernment walked the ancient pilgrimage this summer.

Resources, including prayers, quotes and ideas for the classroom for NVAW will be posted on the Brother Vocation website and social media throughout the week:
