Are you looking for direction in your life?  What do you really want to do with your life?  How do you know if you’re on the right path? How is God speaking to you ?  Are you considering ministry in the Church, perhaps lay ecclesial ministry, priesthood, religious life or the diaconate?
 
If you need resources or help as you reflect on God’s call in your life, please contact me and learn more about the opportunities of service in the Church and about listening to God’s call in your life.
Gracious God,
You have called me to life and gifted me in many ways.
Through Baptism You have sent me to continue the mission of Jesus by sharing my love with others. Strengthen me to respond to Your call each day.
 
Help me to become all You desire of me.
Inspire me to make a difference in others’ lives.
Lead me to choose the way of life You have planned for me.
 
Open the hearts of all to listen to Your call.
Fill all with Your Holy Spirit that we may have listening hearts
and the courage to respond to You.
 
Enkindle in my heart and in the hearts of others the desire
to make the world a better place by serving as a
husband or wife, a lay minister, sister, priest, brother or deacon.
 
Amen.
