Camp Information (DOC)
Vocations camps seek to:
PROVIDE a Catholic environment where young men can come to know Jesus Christ and his invitation to be Men of the Gospel.
FOSTER a deeper life of prayer and devotion. The young men encounter Jesus in daily Mass, His Mother Mary in the Rosary, and His Mercy in the opportunity for confession.
EXPLORE how discernment works for Catholic men and the vocational calls open to them: marriage, priesthood, diaconate, religious life, or dedicated single life.
ENCOURAGE participants to commit themselves to daily prayer and ask God for an openness and willingness to follow Him.
What is a Vocation?
Each of us have a personal call from God to be his servant. God has a specific plan for each one of us to make us the happiest and greatest person we could ever be. As members of the Catholic Church, we understand that God’s plan is a mystery that is always unfolding in front of us.
For about 2000 years, Christ has been calling individuals to become his disciples, some to be married and others to be single. Each one of us, at some point or another, begins to ask the question, “What is God asking me to do with my life?” Maybe priesthood or religious life has been on your mind, or perhaps you are just curious to find out more about vocations at this time. Whatever it is that brought you here, take some time to explore the many vocational possibilities the Catholic Church has to offer.
The Serra Calendar (PDF) reminds us daily to pray for our priests and our seminarians.
