National Vocation Awareness Week

National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promote vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations. NVAW began in 1976 when the US Bishops designated the 28th Sunday of the year for NVAW.  In 1997, this celebration was moved to coincide with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, in January.  Beginning in 2017 NVAW was moved to the first full week of November.

National Vocation Awareness Week is November 5-11, 2017.  The theme for this year is “Building a Vocation Culture in Today’s Church”
