Vocations Alive!

Is God calling you to more? Vocations Alive! is devoted to developing a culture of discernment where Catholic students at college campuses have the environment, support, and tools they need to discern their call in life. Our goals are:

  • To teach students how to pray and how to listen to God in prayer.
  • To help students integrate God into every part of their lives, careers, homes, values, and relationships. 
  • To be a presence of support for the students, faculty, staff, and alumni in their journey of faith.

What is a Vocation?

Each person has a unique call from God—a call to be and live out our most authentic self in the world. God invites us to live out this call in marriage, through the single life, or as consecrated religious leaders or priests.   

“Be who you are called to be and you will set the world on fire” – Catherine of Siena

What is Discernment?

Discernment is the process we enter to determine our vocation…our call from God.  It is an ongoing journey of discovery to be the person that God is calling us to be. Through prayer, one develops a relationship with God and can learn to listen to God’s voice in our hearts. 

“Your calling is where your passions meets the world’s needs”  - Fredrick Beuchner
