Welcome to the Diocese of Orlando Office of Vocations website. This site offers a number of resources - including prayers, videos, frequently asked questions, and testimonials - for those discerning a vocation to religious life and those interested in learning more about religious vocations. As you pray for God’s guidance and direction for your life and the lives of those around you, we are here for support with our prayers, resources, and personal presence.
The Office of Vocations website offers resources for:
- Men and women, who are discerning a vocation to religious life or want to learn more about God's call for their lives;
- Parish staff members, who are key to planting seeds for religious vocations;
- Parents, who may have questions about vocations or want information if their son or daughter is discerning a call to religious life.
The site also offers news and upcoming events for the Office of Vocations, as well as information on current seminarians and the seminaries which they attend.
May God’s special grace be your source of strength and may Mary, Our Mother, guide your every step. May you be Jesus’ hands and feet in our world. Amen.
God calls each person to a life of holiness and service, whether single, married, ordained or consecrated. The Office of Vocations provides discernment opportunities, encouragement, support, education and resources for those responding to God's call through the ministerial priesthood and religious life. We are committed to fostering an environment where vocations to the priesthood and religious life are valued and nurtured within the domestic church of the family and the local parish community.
