Vocations

“Vocation” means “call,” but in order to answer the call, the one who is responding to the call must first be able to hear the call.
My faith was nourished early on by attending the Shrine of St. Therese Catholic School and by our family nanny, who taught me to pray.
We see our deacons up on the altar, but permanent deacons, like Deacon Robert Sanchez, perform a much more extensive ministry unique to God’s plan for each of them as disciples of Jesus.
I have been blessed with so many great examples of priests, and I believe that God is calling me to explore becoming a priest.
