Office of Vocations Print this post

Do not be afraid of joy! That joy which the Lord gives us when we allow him to enter our life. Let us allow him to enter our lives and invite us to go out to the margins and proclaim the Gospel.
Pope Francis


Welcome! The Vocations Office is committed to creating a culture of vocations in the Diocese of Venice where everyone prays, thinks, and acts to nurture, encourage, and invite vocations. While embracing a understanding of vocation that includes marriage, the single life, and other grace-filled ministries of the laity, we are dedicated especially to encouraging those young men and women who express a particular interest in the ordained and consecrated life.
