Cover of the 2021 Vocations Awareness Supplement

This issue of The Criterion features our annual supplement that highlights vocations in the Church to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life.

It is ordinarily published during the U.S. bishops’ annual Vocations Awareness Week, which this year is on Nov. 7-13.

From the beginning, the Church has recognized that marriage is also a vocation, a pathway to holiness, to which God calls people. The Criterion publishes two marriage supplements annually, usually in February and July.

In addition, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has three offices which promote vocations. For information on the Office of Marriage and Family Life, visit For information on the diaconate, go to For information on the priesthood and consecrated life, visit
