St. Juan Diego’s Vocation Ministry networks information from the global Catholic community about the process for vocational discernment, collaborating with the Parish's Ministries in the formatting and delivery of that information through the programs of each of the ministries.
The role of the parish vocations ministry can bring value in facilitating the inward-focused phases of discernment. The Vocations Ministry strives to serve the vocation discernment process through providing access to information for SJD Parish Ministries as well as directly to Parishoners.

God our Father,
We thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as priests, deacons, and consecrated persons.
Send your Holy Spirit to help others to respond generously and courageously to your call.
May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth and young adults.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
