Vocations Awareness Supplement highlights the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life

Cover of the Vocations Awareness SupplementThis issue of The Criterion features our annual supplement that highlights vocations in the Church to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life. (Read all our stories here)

It is ordinarily published during the U.S. bishops’ annual Vocations Awareness Week, which this year is on Nov. 5-11.

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.
