Considering a religious vocation?

For young adults considering a priestly or religious vocation, here is a short list of resources gathered by Andy Miller, associate director of vocations for the archdiocese.

Discerning the Will of God by Timothy M. Gallagher. “A general book that’s good for all Catholics who are asking basic discernment questions,” Miller notes.

Lord Teach Us to Pray by Father Jeffery Kirby. “This resource is about developing a prayer life, which is foundational to all Christian life.”

To Save a Thousand Souls by Father Brett A. Brannen. “Great resource to be used in a group or for individual discernment.”

HearGodsCall.com. “The archdiocesan vocation office’s website is a great local resource. One can find information about events, spiritual direction, religious communities and seminaries—really all aspects of discernment.”  

DiocesanPriest.com. “The website for the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors. Created to be a one-stop shop for diocesan priesthood discernment. Great links to books, Church documents and other resources.” †
