PLEASE PRAY FOR VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD AND CONSECREATED LIFE Is God Calling You? Vocational discernment groups meet to assist young men who are discerning the possibility that God may be calling them to a life of priestly ministry. These groups are designed to explore a priestly vocation with other life-minded men through prayer and sharing vocation stories and experiences. The group meetings aren’t meant to convince anyone that the priesthood is their vocation. They are designed to assist you in discovering if the priesthood is your true vocation and build your relationship with Christ along the way. If you are a faithful, single, Roman Catholic man, between the ages of 18 and 40, and are asking yourself whether God is calling you to be a priest, you are cordially invited to attend this month’s discernment meeting on November 23rd, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Saint Charles Borromeo Parish,2226 Riverton Road, Cinnaminson, NJ Join Very Rev. Peter James Alindogan and Rev. Chris Picollo, as they share their experiences of the priesthood, followed by prayer and conclude with conversation and a meal. Please register with Vocation Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 609-406-7449. Join us at this exciting time as you discover and respond to His invitation!
