“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” – Matthew 9:37
Creating a Vibrant Culture of Vocations in our Parishes

With Keynote Speakers
Rev. James Mason & Sr. Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz, OP

This year the focus is on building a culture of vocations in our parishes – a culture that reveals that God has a call for each and every one of us – and taking a closer look, in particular, at how to encourage and promote vocations to priesthood and consecrated life.  Speakers are Rev. James Mason, President-Rector of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary and former Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Sioux Falls, and Sr. Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz, OP, Vocation Director for the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist and a co-author of the vocational discernment book, “And Mary’s Yes Continues.”

The conference officially begins on Monday morning, March 19, and ends the afternoon of the 20, but we’ll have a Holy Hour and hospitality on Sunday evening, March 18, for anyone who can join us, along with an opportunity for early check-in.
